OVERALL EXPERIENCE
1. What did you like about this program?
Text Response
The teachers were nice and very helpful and knew exactly what they were talking about.
Developing programs and applications
It was okay. Most teachers cared enough to teach and guide us if we had issues. The
coursework was a modest amount and fairly easy to keep up with.
I enjoyed the project based learning and the variety of languages that we learned.

2. What would you change about this program?
Text Response
get rid of RPG and have more of any other language
Availability of instructors and semesters the courses are scheduled
Get rid of RPG. There was no instruction in those two courses. A waste of time and money.
I would like to see options of specialities that we are allowed to take in order to learn more
about a specific language that interests us.

We only talked about it a little and only really practiced it by being in group projects once or
