Study trip enables software students to put theory into practice (in Amsterdam!)

in AllMarkets

For the second time in a row, Barco and consulting agency Delaware are teaming up with renowned computer science professors of the universities of Antwerp, Ghent and Brussels to organize a truly unique code camp for software engineering students.

The second edition of the Software Engineering Study Trip will take 20 students to Amsterdam (from 4 to 8 February 2019) for a deep dive on some ground-breaking software developments, such as Artificial Intelligence, Continuous Integration and microservices. Through hands-on sessions, academic insights and tips from experienced software engineers, students will learn how to put their software skills into practice. 


Education as our social responsibility

In line with Barco’s social responsibility strategy, this software study trip has been initiated to help close the gap between the theory and practice of software development. Jan De Witte, Barco’s CEO adds: “We have a history of close collaboration with universities, both on joint research and on taking up educational responsibilities. In addition, we are a company that thrives on innovation and superior user experiences. Both of them are strongly driven by software. In line with our values, we are convinced that growing our company in the domain of software goes hand in hand with helping the communities around us to thrive.”
