    In today's world, employers seek graduates with experience, a sandwich degree is one way undergraduates can address this. Sandwich degrees allow students to work full time, typically for one year as part of their course. Whilst sandwich degrees become popular among universities and students alike, there is an administrative price for all parties involved in the process. The focus of this project was to develop a web-based solution that can alleviate some of this administrative burden, with the hope of making the placement process easier for those concerned. This report leads the reader through the circumstances that led to the development of the student placement portal and discusses the design and implementation. A section on project management details the self-management issues governing planning and responding to the project dynamics. Design tradeoffs and problems encountered for the ASP.NET/SQL Server implementation are then discussed, with particular reference to software design patterns, industry standards and best practices. Moving on, several implementation issues are covered before a section devoted to testing and the problems encountered with automated unit testing of web applications. The final sections critically evaluate the artefact before finally concluding with a passage of self-reflection and further thoughts.
