Two cohorts per term will be formed to do systems projects, one of which will be Web-based. Twin Cities organizations will be solicited for systems development or other related projects. Resident faculty will oversee teams. Group project and individual reports will be created. Clients' perceptions will be determined. This experience will give the students many networking opportunities in addition to the critical opportunity to apply what they have learned in a rigorous way. Theory and practice will merge to meet the fast-paced requirements of a real world IS environment. When the cohort successfully completes its project, its members will have valuable experiences to draw on for years to come.
