Graduate students in the ATLAS Master of Science in Information and Communication Technology for Development (MS-ICTD) program in April presented the work they've accomplished during their practicum semester.
The practicum portion of the program consists of an internship or service project with a company engaged in ICTD efforts, an international development agency, foundation, non-governmental organization, or other organization in the public or private sector.
The ICTD practicum program matches students with the organizations. The students work in ICTD design, deployment, monitoring and evaluation while being mentored by experts across development sectors.
Practicums have often led to full-time employment, as well as ongoing lab and research projects.
The graduate presenters were:
• Chris Carruth -- Participatory media with the South Sudanese diaspora
• Neil DiMuccio -- Usability and scale of microfinance applications in Kenya
• Mustafa Naseem -- Internet policy at Verizon headquarters, Washington, D.C.
• Joellen Raderstorf --Integrating energy and ICT networks in Namibia.
• Isla Schanuel -- Aggregated needs/services platform for Broomfield County.
• Abigale Stangl -- Texture-based technology for the visually impaired at the Sikuli Lab, CU
• McClees Stephens -- Livelihood and capacity building through ICT in the Amazon.
