R-H students earn real-world engineering experience

TERRE HAUTE — Officials from The GForge Group, the provider of the software application lifecycle management suite GForge Advanced Server, announced their first private/public partnership with Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. An agreement has been reached to establish a special mentorship program with computer science and software engineering students at Rose-Hulman.

During the school year, Rose-Hulman students will be divided into teams of four or five. Each group will be tasked with implementing a new feature in GForge Advanced Server. The program is designed to provide undergraduate students with real-world engineering experience.

According to Rose-Hulman assistant professor Chandan Rupakheti, the mentorship program, developed jointly with GForge Group President Tony Bibbs, is an incredible opportunity for software engineering students who wish to immerse themselves in “real-world” problems.

“This partnership opens up a new avenue of collaboration between academia and industry. We are extremely excited to launch this special 10-week mentorship program. It has been carefully designed for students to build software components that potentially can be rolled into the product line of an industry leader like GForge,” stated Rupakheti.

Bibbs reinforced the importance of providing hands-on experience to Rose-Hulman students.

 “Every year, the job market competition increases, and it’s critical for students to gain in-depth experience in product development,’’ Bibbs said. “For example, they need to apply agile software principles, be the best in writing and testing source code and performing peer code reviews.

“Through this mentorship program, the students will learn how to effectively collaborate using tools like the GForge Advanced Server. After all, we know poor project management and collaboration result in software projects that fail.”
