The importance of communication in the digital world can’t be underestimated. In this course, students will enhance their communications and technology skills by using the design process to create software products relevant to the digital age in which we live. Combining software engineering and entrepreneurship, students will create digital products using a variety of software tools and computer languages, and learn how to brand and market these products and services such as games, web sites, videos, mobile applications, etc. The design and development of their products will require study in market research, conceptual design, prototype development, product implementation and testing, as well as branding and social media marketing strategies for the final product launch. Students will have a choice in selecting topics or issues of interest and be able to pursue their interests in depth. By the end of the course, students will have developed a portfolio of their work and a digital product that they may continue to develop and market forward.
