Senior Design Coach Testimonials


"The University of Nebraska and School of Computing have prepared the students for work in the field of computer science and engineering. My job as a coach is to help translate academic work into a 'real world' development project. Experience with software engineering is not necessary to be an effective coach, in fact, the students will be leading all technical decisions along with their sponsor. I help the students navigate communication within their team and sponsor, provide feedback on technical presentations, help translate stakeholder expectations into development work, and much more. I enjoy working with the students and seeing their projects go from an idea, to prototype, to deliverable over the course of the school year."
