Project Based Learning
Boston International College (BIC) truly believes in project-based learning, which enables students to apply their theoretical knowledge and skills learnt into the engaging real-time practical experience. Students enrolled in the BCIS programme are assigned small-scale projects related to the course in each subject by their respective subject teacher. Besides this, the BCIS programme consists of three projects which are to be done in the fourth, sixth and eighth semesters, each of 1, 2 and 4 credit hours respectively. These projects aim to provide students with the experience of developing a medium to large scale project in a small team. All aspects of the development process are considered: problem specification, requirement extraction, system design, implementation, integration, testing and documentation.
We motivate our students to study research articles published in international journals with higher impact factors in order to be updated about new trends and innovations being developed in the field of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). Also, we encourage them to develop their projects with emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (Al) and Machine Learning, Internet of Things (loT), virtual and augmented reality, Robotics and Automation, edge computing, cybersecurity, and so on.
