Cube Cities @ SAIT

Cube Cities is an industry representative for curriculum review at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT). This morning SAIT hosted a market research panel to engage industry with program instructors and SAIT curriculum managers. Courses reviewed today were: Web Developer and Object Oriented Software Developer.

It was very interesting to listen to the challenges facing educators in keeping the curriculum relevant in today's changing marketplace. A good number of very frank questions were asked. Also an interesting opportunity to meet SAIT administration and listen to the questions posed to and from industry on the state of business software technology. Outstanding community built around SAIT. In fact, SAIT was the first post-secondary institute to involve industry in curriculum review when it began the program in March 2011.

Here are links to the Web Developer and OOSD courses at SAIT.
