Helping students achieve success in their academic career and beyond is a driving goal for SJSU IT. We’ve partnered with the School of Information Systems and Technology to support student practicum in Management Information Systems. Student teams have the opportunity to work directly with our Project Management Office, supporting the cultivation of professional business processes.
One project features a dynamic cost calculator, created in collaboration between SJSU IT and the Financial Aid & Scholarship Office. This calculator will allow students to estimate costs for university fees, housing, and other college-related expenses in conjunction with their projected and possible Financial Aid awards. Not only is this a fantastic, cross-department project for upper division students, it’s also a tool that might prove valuable for our university and our students.
We’re also working with another student team on website enhancements driven by student feedback. For this project, the team is engaging with students for data-driven feedback on how students interact with the university’s online presence. They’ll work with SJSU IT to develop and implement new features, improved functionality, and user-minded design enhancements.
SJSU IT would like to thank the College of Business for their partnership on expanding student projects options, especially Dr. Leslie Albert, Kevin Soohoo, and Dr. Ramamurti Sridar. We’ll look to expand on these efforts with new student projects and in new majors.
