96-794 Software Mangement Practicum

The practicum involves application of the SM program concepts in an actual business environment. Acting as consultants to one or more customers, student teams must scope a project; develop a project plan and detailed statement of work. Practicum topics are typically proposed by outside companies, which are looking to work with our students, but there are other options available as well. Students must demonstrate all deliverables to the customer(s), whose assessment of the work is a major component of the grade. More than a simple internship, the practicum involves real responsibility, teamwork, accountability, and rigor. Available to second year students only.
