Senior Project Website Version 4.0
Juan Caraballo & Roly VicarÍa
The Senior Project course works under the principle of testing potential graduates ability to work under a real software development environment. Their success in this course will enable them to work on a significant software project that may help them obtain a job due to their experiences and contribution. The Senior Project Website allows students to join such projects. However the process to match these students is rather slow and very rigid. Not allowing any matching unless a perfect match of students to projects with regards to skills they have to contribute can happen. Furthermore the head professor lacks the ability to evaluate and tweak match results leaving him to either accept the match’s result or do it manually. The match’s result can also benefit from being more descriptive with regards to how students benefit a project.
