Program Detail - Technology and Culture in England
More and more, software is expected to be able to perform well for people from many cultures. In this three-week study program, students will visit companies and learn about the difficulties in developing world-wide software. But even more, the software development process is no longer developed by people in the same office space, but now often involves people from all over the globe. Many companies allow their employees to tele-commute, so being able to work with people in remote locations is often a requirement. Students in this study program will partner with other students attending universities including Queen Mary University and Cardiff Metropolitan University to develop a software product. The kind of product developed will be determined by each student team. Students will meet their partners, and design and begin developing their projects during the fall semester as part of the prep course. During our study tour in London and Cardiff, students will complete and present their work. This also fulfills the study abroad requirement for B.A. Int'l Project Management.
