The University Software House

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

University computing science departments require a group software engineer
ing project. The group project brings together the diverse parts of student learning. However, this project is often with a staff member ‘acting’ as client. A software house staffed with students who work with live clients could supplement the group project. This aids employability and encourages entrepreneurial approaches amongst students. This preliminary report for an HEA STEM survey explores what universities are doing in this area, and will enable others to build on previous experience.
