Course Aims

In this capstone project course, students will integrate what they have learnt to propose, design and implement a technology solution to address a business problem in the FinTech area. Students work either individually or in a small team to conduct the project. The business problem is either identified by students themselves or defined by an industry partner (e.g., large financial institutions, FinTech start-ups, etc.). The main objective of this capstone project course is to develop and enhance students' problem solving and hands-on skills. A proof of concept or prototype is expected to be one of the main project deliverables. In addition, students also have the opportunity to practice their soft skills (e.g., communication, individual and/or team work, project management) in this capstone project.
