Agile Experimentation (AgileEx) is an experiential course in which teams of students use agile methodologies to design and prototype viable Internet of Things (IoT) innovations combining hardware and software components. The course involves:
Practicing Agile/SCRUM project management methodologies and software, and learning how to scale Agile environments from small startups to large organizations
Designing and building IoT (or wearable) devices with sensors and actuators, and programming hardware (i.e., Arduino boards)
Designing digital interfaces and processes (e.g., app mockups, process diagrams) with software tools
Running experiments and surveying customers to test hypotheses and iterate in the development of a prototype
Building an innovation with a clear value proposition
Learning about emerging technologies
Presenting your work in a final pitch that showcases your prototype and its market viability
The course aims to train business graduates who are confident life-long learners of technology, can work in Agile environments, and can participate in the development of innovative technological solutions that integrate hardware and software components.
The course does not require programming, Agile, or software/hardware prototyping experience.
