Starting in Summer 2013, AIT Offers a New One-Month Summer Term

Beginning in Summer 2013, AIT will now offer a one-month Summer Term. The Summer Term will consist one 4-credit course on Mobile Software Development and one 2-credit course on Budapest Studies.

Students can take Summer courses at AIT in two ways: either independently, for those students wishing to participate in AIT’s partial curriculum during the summer only, or as an extension of the regular Spring Semester in order to receive additional credit. This last option might be especially attractive to students whose home institutions operate on a quarter system, as this way, between the regular Spring semester and the new Summer Term  classes, they will be able to complete sufficient credits for two regular quarters.

Mobile application development is one of the newest and most exciting areas of information technology. Mobile Software Development is a course that blends theory and practice, ultimately allowing students to develop, design, and implement their own mobile “apps.” Participants of the IT Entrepreneurship course and the User Interface Design course are especially encouraged to participate in this course as well in order to realize the user interface designed in the User Interface Design course and test the viability of the business plan completed in IT Entrepreneurship course. For further details, please see the course syllabus.

Budapest Studies is a 2-credit course on the past and present of Budapest (from the Roman times till the present), as well as some development dilemmas the city has faced and is facing right now. This course has been specifically designed for students studying computer science and entrepreneurship and who are interested in human studies at an academic level.  The course aims to provide insight into the rich heritage of Budapest based on recent academic approaches. For further details, please see the course syllabus.

The cost of the Summer Term  will be $3,000 for regular Spring semester students, and $3,500 for those only participating in the Summer program.

First AIT Summer Term will be held between May 27 – June 25 2013.
Application deadline is November 1, 2012.
