TDDD31 Software Engineering with International Partners

Course information

Developing software with international partners demands competence about the software market as well as knowledge about cultural differences. Successful partnerships have therefore to be founded on common goals, shared commitments, and mutual rewards, but also in a solid understanding of cultural differences, clear expectations about the evolution of the software industry and mutual commitment.

Evolution of the software Industry as well as issues that stimulate or affect the software industry, the software market in different countries and how to increase (practical) skills needed for effective communication are key issues we discuss in this course.

The course will address key issues of global software industry, international outsourcing (i.e. software production outsourcing, IT activities and IT infrastructure outsourcing, and business process outsourcing), and the transfer of high technology from both domestic and international perspectives.

The examination of this course is divided into three parts: Seminar Participation, Project Assignement and Poster Presentation.
