COMP 477: IT Project Management

Credit Hours



COMP 271


This course is an introduction to the philosophy and practice of project management. The course involves a student group project to investigate and plan a “real world” project. The investigation requires application of project-management tools covered in the class, including a project proposal that specifies project objectives, schedules, work breakdown structure, and responsibilities, an written interim report, and a final oral and written report. The course will likely include both business and computer science students working together on a student team.
