Abstract [en]

This paper brings together three different sets of experiences of using large scale open ended group projects as a means of enhancing the skills of undergraduate students and preparing them for a career in Software Engineering. The paper commences by examining the circumstances in which open ended group projects have proved to be successful, briefly indicating the criteria that have been used to measure that success. It then examines some of the choices that must be made in designing and managing such projects, drawing on the different experiences of the three authors. It is argued throughout that open ended group projects are an effective way of developing and enhancing skills and of reinforcing learning in most knowledge areas. It is further suggested that open ended group projects offer a way of preparing students for their subsequent careers which is valued by industry and commerce and which also motivates and enthuses students.
