Career Preparation and Software Engineering Capstone Project



"You are always in your career." -- Matthew Moran

"Not only will technology change quickly, the social-political-economic world in which engineers work will change continuously. In this context it will not be this or that particular knowledge that engineers will need, but rather the ability to learn new things quickly and the ability to apply knowledge to new problems and new contexts."  
  -- National Academy of Engineering: "The Engineer of 2020"

The Virtual Hand Raise

I recognize that it sometimes takes courage to ask a question in class or to express an opinion. But, the worst thing of all is to not say anything! So, this class has a feature called the Virtual Hand Raise. Click here to get into it. It will allow you to send me a question or comment, completely anonymously. I will answer all questions submitted this way by emailing the class or by telling you at the start of the next class.

But, if you want a personal reply, send email.

Adobe Connect

In an effort to help you communicate better with your clients, we have access to a virtual "room" on Adobe Connect. Let me know if you'd like to use it.

Some classes will be specific to running your project. Some classes will relate to CS Career Preparation. You are expected to attend all classes. Attendance will be taken at some classes and will contribute to your grade.

Students With Disabilities

Accommodations are collaborative efforts between students, faculty and Disability Access Services (DAS). Students with accommodations approved through DAS are responsible for contacting the faculty member in charge of the course prior to or during the first week of the term to discuss accommodations. Students who believe they are eligible for accommodations but who have not yet obtained approval through DAS should contact DAS immediately at 737-4098.
