Focussing on the design, implementation and evaluation of some form of constructed artefact, Design Science Research (DSR) has been gaining ground as a research framework highly suited to the disciplines of Computer Science and Information Technology. This paper describes a simplified version of the framework which is taught to final year undergraduates studying for a Bachelor of Information Technology qualification. The paper considers the value of encouraging these students to use the methodology to frame their final year capstone development projects and describes the results that have been achieved. It concludes by summarising the benefits for both those students who choose to continue into postgraduate study and those who move directly into the IT industry.
