There are two kinds of projects here :
1) An Enterprise application which primarily does not have any intelligence
in it, and is purely form driven. The design aspects of an application would
be reflected here, and might not require much R&D.
2) A 'research' project - something like Face/Speech recognition et al - now
this requires a much deeper understanding of the subject and a significant
timeline for research and then the subsequent implementation. ( i remember i
started off my final year thesis in mid-second year)
Now, it all depends on the aptitude and go-getter attitude of the student to
choose either of the above. Though, #1 sounds boring, building a mini-ERP
system or an Order-processing workflow is NOT 'trivial'.
For #1, i have been thinking of an COMPLETE OfficeSuite - which encompasses
Calendar, Booking COnf Rooms , Timecards, project mgmt, defect tracking,
Transport mgmt, Employee DB and search, simple HR system etc etc. I am
aware of 'independant' applications that cater to the above, but there is NO
SINGLE product which caters to above. Though trivial, this would be a boon
for small entrprises ; and if the students can afford to 'support' it after
college, they can also monetize it by targetting the SMEs - whose market cap
For #2, there are loads and loads - depends on the research interests of the
