About

This course prepares the students to collaborate with an industrial partner as either is an entrepreneur or innovative software engineer. Therefore the course has two themes:
1) innovation and entrepreneurship 
2) industrial software engineering research projects.

These two themes prepare the students to create their own start-ups and to continue interacting with such entities as innovation incubators and innovation financiers. The students are able to understand how business models work, how the companies innovate today and what it means to take a software product from a research prototype stage to a product that can be monetized.

The course also prepares the students to interact with their stakeholders in industrial software engineering projects by explaining different communication strategies,exploring the ethical issues in software engineering (both research and development) and by explaining how to construct the product development roadmaps.

The students may work individually or in groups of two.
