Students travel to Italy to learn programing

For 4 weeks in June, 5 computer science and software engineering students traveled to Calabria, Italy to learn programing.

Under the guidance of Daniela Inclezan, an assistant professor in the department of computer science and software engineering, students studied at the University of Calabria, which is known as a world renowned university for their research in logic programming.

Students were able to take CSE 270 (Knowledge Representation) and CSE 230 (Leadership and Sustainability) to further their programing skills and knowledge base.

The program also  invited speakers and professors from the University of Calabria so the students could be further exposed to the Italian teaching style.

When they were not in class, students took trips to explore the country.

Over their four weeks their, students were able to go on 4 weekend trips. The excursions included visits to the Sila National Park, a trip to Cosenza, to taste authentic Calabrian cuisine, a weekend in Tropea, a touristic beach destination on the Tyrrhenian Sea, and a long weekend in at the Ionian Sea.

“Our students learned learned to appreciate cultural differences, and I hope that they learned a great deal about themselves [through this experience],” explained Inclezan.
