Prof. Jeff Ringenberg and the Multidisciplinary Design Program are offering ENGR 455-400 – Multidisciplinary Software Development for MDP students: a 2-semester project course where each student is part of a team with a team faculty mentor, a mentor from the client, and a real application project. The majority of homework will be applied development work for the project.
CS Majors with senior standing on or before Fall semester will receive Capstone credit during the Fall semester of their project.
Enrollment in this course is by permission of the instructor only. You must apply via the Multidisciplinary Design Program in order to be awarded a position on a project team and a spot within this class.
