A Very Short Capstone Project Design Management and Design Tactics

T. Hui Teo


Multi-disciplinary design projects in the graduating year of undergraduate study are one of the most challenging tasks for both students and faculties. The faculties need to define and organize projects that are suitable for all students from all different disciplinary. In our context, the students come from different disciplines, namely Product Design (PD), System Design (SD), Information Science Design (ISD), and Architectural Design (AD), which are the most diversify group of students. The students from different discipline must have a mutual understanding of the project execution, set the right expectation and exercise proper project management skill. This work summarized the guidelines for the multi-disciplinary design project management bases on the instructor’s and student’s perspectives.
