Pre-requisites:
The Solutioning Project is designed to assess participants' software architecture, design and solutioning competencies, which are essential skills for a software architect. Each participant is required to submit a project proposal for evaluation before the start of the project.

NUS-ISS instructors will evaluate each project for suitability in the areas of software analysis and design, scope of work and effort required. Once the project proposal is approved, participants can then start work on it and produce the deliverables by the stipulated deadline.
