Agile Systems have emerged to challenge traditional system development practices. The goal is to overcome the limitations of high rates of system development failures, due in part to the complexities of traditional methods and the inability to cope with changes in today's dynamic and evolving engineering environment. This class will teach the Agile methodology with application towards the development of a custom team-based project.

Agile methodology can be applied to develop any type of engineering project from pure software development to full system (software and hardware) development. Each student will learn this methodology and be able to apply it.

 The instructor, Doug Ashworth, has over thirty years of engineering, computer science, and project/program management experience in private industry and government service. He has taught at Loyola University as adjunct for fourteen years in the Computer Science and Engineering departments. He holds masters degrees in computer science and engineering from Loyola University and a Masters degree in systems engineering from Stevens Institute, as well as a B.S. in physics from Drexel University.

Agile Systems will be offered at the Timonium Graduate Center on Thursdays, 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm, June early August, 2014. The course fee is $2,550.

 Additionally, Ruby on Rails and Advanced Operating Systems will be offered at the Columbia Graduate Center this summer.
