What are R.W.E. Projects?
Real World Experience Projects consist of two different types of projects:
CORPORATE PROJECTS: The employer provides a project topic relevant to their company and on which they would like have some research conducted and hear a new perspective from the next generation of business professionals. Students work with the company designated rep. and deliver recommendations, results and deliverables by the end of the semester. Student teams usually consist of 5-7 members.
CASE STUDY PROJECTS: The topic is chosen by the students. An employer rep. consults with the students throughout the semester to keep them on track and productive. The level of engagement of the employer is much less than for Corporate Projects while still allowing for an employer, student connection. Student teams usually consist of 5-7 members.
