Software Product Engineering for Digital Markets

40 students in 10 teams

It's not the same CS3216 Software Product Engineering for Digital Markets is not your traditional software engineering course. You will not have lectures teaching you how to write in a particular programming language. You will not have assignments that assess you only for the quality of your code. You will not have a bar set for you. In fact, we don’t even know how high the bar is. It's about your dreams Inspired by The Last Lecture (or "Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams"), this course is your chance to start realising your dreams today. You will get the chance to show off your creativity to do something different. You are free to build almost anything under the sun. It's about change It will be a mistake to think that CS3216 is about teaching you how to work on new platforms. The world changes so fast that it will be obsolete by the time you graduate. In fact, you are more or less expected to learn them on your own. It's not about learning how to work on a platform. It’s about learning how to learn. It’s about equipping yourself with the ability to pick up new skills on the fly to face a changing world. It's not just about coding Enrolment to this course is open to students of all faculties and students. You will work in small inter-disciplinary teams to create your killer applications. Programming experience for non-School of Computing (SoC) students is not a pre-requisite since work will be done in teams. In previous years, we have had students from Science, Arts and Social Sciences, Business (including an MBA student) and Engineering in addition to SoC.

A*genda - 21st Century Event Planning

What's the most compelling reason that people go to an event? Most likely the content of the event. And this is why the presentation of events' agenda is so important. However, current agenda planning solution relies mostly on spreadsheets, making the agenda very hard to plan for the organisers, and allowing almost no interaction for the event-goers. As a B2B App, A*genda is here to the rescue. It features a drag-and-drop, intuitive organiser-facing interface that makes event planning a smooth experience, and provides analytics to the organisers for them to gauge how popular the sessions are. For the event-goers, they can personalise the agenda by bookmarking their interested sessions, add the sessions into their calendar Apps and receive SMS notifications before the sessions start.

Pivot

Pivot is a next generation online tuition platform. Singstat reports approximately 600 thousand children within primary school to junior college ages and according to the Straits Times, 7 out of 10 parents send their children for tuition. This is a huge market, that is worth almost SGD$1billion. Yet, only 3 out of 10 students actually feel that their grades improved. The issue here is that good tutors are rare, and are always fully booked. Our app tackles that problem, by moving these good tutors online, saving them the trouble of traveling and looking for a location. In essence, we create time. Our platform provides a online classroom environment for the tutors to conduct their classes. It comes complete with video chat, pdf sharing, whiteboard, as well as screen sharing to give tutors all the necessary tools they need to replicate the teaching experience. On top of this tool we also build an management system, where one can match students to teachers. The end result is that students and teachers can attend classes with a single click.
