Group Term Project.
CIS 772 is a capstone design course focusing on information systems
projects. It is appropriate for undergraduates in the information
systems or software systems options in either ENG or ASC. A capstone
design course is required for ENG students entering Autumn 1993 or
later. Other software systems students may count this course for the
``software lab elective''. Other information systems students may count
it as a technical elective. The course is also appropriate for
graduate students interested in software engineering and/or database
- 516 or 757; and 560 and 670.

Note that on p. 12 under "Nested query"
line 3 should be "where eno in" rather than "where eno =". The
nested select statement may return a set of values rather than a
single value. Thus "in" must be used.

- Weekly Group Meetings:
- Each group member is to submit a written weekly progress report.
Hard copies of these reports are due at the start of each group meeting. A copy should also be posted to the Web. The group's home page should point to listings by name and by week.
In addition, one member of each subgroup: Process, Database, and Tools is to give a short presentation summarizing that subgroup's status. Everyone is expected to give at least two presentations during the quarter.
