The project proposal is meant to simulate the contract that is established between the software engineering team (you) and the customers or marketing department. Also, the proposal will contain your initial system design. In order for me to approve a project it will need to be sufficiently challenging. Of course, this is a judgement call.
In order to make the whole process more fair, each group is required to give a 10 minute informal presentation on the day the proposals are due. You can then ask questions of the other teams. At the end of class I will collect a secret vote from every person in the class rating each project in terms of its "technical challenge". I will use the results from these votes in determining the suitability of each project.
What you need to turn in: (80%)
(20%) A 10 minute presentation on the day the proposal is due. This is an informal presentation (the formal one will be at the end of the semester) so don't spend too much time making nice overheads and such. You just need to convince others that your proposed application is way beyond the engineering abilities of an untrained professional.
