There is an increasing demand in the industry for graduates with problem solving skills; those with the capability of applying the theories, methods and techniques learnt during their degree programme in solving real life problems. The goal behind applied computer science programme is to produce such graduates who can easily integrate into the industry immediately after college and become indispensable problem solvers. Another goal of the applied computer science programme is to produce entrepreneurs who can create opportunities and bring about innovative solutions. Knowing fully well the demand of the industry, Project 2 has been designed to help students consolidate the knowledge and skills acquired during the course of the degree programme by developing systems (hardware or software) that are applicable to the market. Such systems as a matter of fact should contribute by addressing gaps in the market and should mainly target areas that need solutions unique to the African region. This is not in any way to limit students’ horizon; they should think globally but be able also to customize their solutions to the region.
