This Course will prepare you well for industry. Verbal and written communication skills are perhaps the two most important qualifications to have for your future career, and Course 10.26 can also certainly help you sharpen your interviewing proficiency to get there.
There are opportunities for interested students to continue work on their project at the conclusion of Course 10.26. To do this, some have joined the UROP program and others have worked on a B.S. thesis.
