Program Description:

Mobile Software Development

Hungarian Parliament
The Hungarian Parliament building is the world's largest parliament/government building.

AIT offers a 5-week-long program in the summer that consists of one 4-credit course (1 GAC unit) on Mobile Software Development and one 2-credit course (0.5 GAC unit) on Budapest Studies for a total of 6 credits (1.5 GAC units). Students can take summer courses at AIT in two ways: either independently, for those students wishing to participate in AIT’s partial curriculum during the summer only, or as an extension of the regular Spring Semester in order to receive additional credit (requires application at Gustavus for both programs).

Mobile application development is one of the newest and most exciting areas of information technology. Mobile Software Development is a course that blends theory and practice, ultimately allowing students to develop, design, and implement their own mobile “apps.” Participants of the IT Entrepreneurship course and the User Interface Design course are especially encouraged to participate in this course as well in order to realize the user interface designed in the UID course and test the viability of the business plan completed in IT Entrepreneurship course.

Budapest Studies is a 2-credit course on the past and present of Budapest (from the Roman times till the present), as well as some development dilemmas the city has faced and is facing right now. This course has been specifically designed for students studying computer science and entrepreneurship and who are interested in human studies at an academic level.  The course aims to provide insight into the rich heritage of Budapest based on recent academic approaches.
