Rogers, D. (Dave) (2014-03)
Once a business has decided that a particular problem will be solved using an automated system, the question that first confronts technology professionals employed to provide the solution is: "Now what?" This course addresses that often-terrifying predicament by introducing students to the current formal methods used to analyse, plan, design, implement, and maintain integrated software and hardware systems. The course will also explore project management and team organization techniques specific to the information technology industry. The class will study these topics using a seminar format, augmenting the material with the experiences of guest lecturers representing the local high-tech industry.
