At the leading edge, software engineering in today's network society demands a broad range of interdisciplinary skill, vision and expertice. Complex problems require innovative, technically sophisticated solutions, while organization, psychology, group dynamics and culture play critical roles in determining standards for success and failure in the software industry. In response to rapid changes in the field of computer science, the Student Originated Software program prides itself on producing highly skilled practitioners by uniquely preparing students to meet real world challenges. Through integrating design theory, application technology and unified approaches to systems implementation, the year-long curriculum culminates in the demonstration of a broad range of software projects; scientific, database, business, web-based, and experimental applications.
