Student Originated Software 1997-1998

Even the best efforts of computer users and software engineers have
not alleviated critical software development problems: most software
is late and over-budget, does not meet user needs or expectations, or
is socially irresponsible. The "software engineering" problem is not
just a matter of technology, but a problem of creativity
and invention, organization, psychology, artistic design, group
dynamics and culture. In addition considerable knowledge and
understanding of the application area is required to design, implement,
market, sell, deploy, support or maintain a successful system.
Evergreen's Student Originated Software program is designed to
address these issues and to prepare students to face these problems.
The full time, year-long program provides not only in-depth
practical experience in software engineering but also a deeper
understanding of the issues behind the inherent
difficulty of writing responsible, effective software.
