Course Project – Project Charter Latest 2016 November

Week 1 Project Guidelines – Charter

For this Course Project, you may choose a project that is of interest to you, or you may choose one to assist you in your senior project. When selecting a project, avoid picking one that is either too big or too small. For example, do not decide to build a new stadium for your local sports team (too big) or to plant your summer garden (too small). Projects may vary from a few hundred thousand dollars to a few million dollars. Projects should last somewhere between 6 months and 2 years. Be sure your selection is an actual project and not routine work. Pick a project you have some experience and familiarity. Do not pick a topic, such as a construction project, unless you understand construction well.

I suggest you negotiate with your instructor this week until the two of you agree on a reasonable project for this Course Project. Do not begin work on a project charter until the instructor has approved your project idea. Good luck and have fun!
