University of South Florida students to study software engineering in India

Students from the University of South Florida (USF) will be visiting India to study a module on software engineering at the education and research wing of Infosys.  The nine undergraduates and four graduate students of management information systems (MIS) are going to spend three weeks at Infosys in Mysore in July-August as part of a tie-up.

The MIS programme includes elements of both business and technology. Balaji Padmanabhan, chair of the department at USF, who is accompanying the group stated that the integrated nature of the programme has made it popular among students from India.  Differing from study abroad programmes that involve exchanges between universities, this interaction is between a university and a software services company. Padmanabhan  explained"India has a strong position in the global software market and this programmes gives good value for education".

The education and research wing of Infosys will oversee the module.  The students will be able to earn three credits, equivalent to a course and the study abroad module can be counted as an elective.  The fundamental methodologies of software design are usually taught within three weeks or done across semesters. The students will attend classes during the day and work on lab-related assignments in the evening.  Source and Credit: Times of India
