This will be a junior-level software engineering class introducing students to team-based projects. Many software development organizations are now global, and it is more common to work with teams in other countries. This program will expose students to other organizations and to how those organizations manage teams. The faculty plans to conduct several sessions prior to leaving for Spain, as well as a post-trip final wrap-up back in College Station before the summer ends.

While on the program, students will take Spanish language classes and will make visits to technical and cultural locations. Housing accommodations will be provided through student off-campus dorms.
