Capstone project courses give students experience solving a substantial problem using

concepts that span several topic areas in the program of study. Having 280 students graduate

every year, requires a substantial effort towards sourcing appropriate projects from the

industry and academia that provide hands-on opportunity to apply IT solutions to problems.

This paper presents two sourcing models for supporting the sourcing of capstone projects. For

each model, the various project origination sources, the distinct attributes, the challenges and

lessons learnt are discussed.
