    1. Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to work for United Titanium. It was an amazing experience and I learned a lot over the summer.

    2. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to work with you this summer. It was really a wonderful experience. I hope that our product will be useful for your company.

  5. Pavithra, Kien and Quan. What a great job you all did this summer! I am serious when I tell everyone that the AMRE program relies on high quality work being done each summer. Thanks for what you have done to keep the program strong. The remote working environment is so unfamiliar to most of us and takes particular motivational and organizational skills. The development of those skills will be of great value to you in whatever opportunity you pursue next. Be sure to bug us if we can serve as a reference for you in future schooling or work.

    1. Thank you so much Dr. Ramsay! Your encouragement means a lot to us. Thank you for all the support and guidance over the summer.

    2. Thank you for all your support this summer, Dr.Ramsay. The experience with AMRE was such a great chance for us to learn from real-world applications.

    3. Thank you Dr. Ramsay. It has been a wonderful experience working with you and the AMRE council this past summer.

  6. Great presentation Kien, Quan, & Pavithra. I’m glad to hear that this project gave the critical experience of taking a real-world problem and turning it into smaller task-oriented milestones to collaboratively achieve a final product. Excellent work!

    1. Thank you for your comment, Dr.Guarnera. The experience of real-world problem solving was also my favorite part of this project.

  7. I am thrilled to see this beautiful application, it has come out really well with a rich graphical interface. I am sure it has given all of you a very good exposure to working in a team from requirements through delivery of a final software along with associated documentation. Congratulations to all of you for the excellent work.

  8. Excellent presentation Kien, Pavithra, and Quan!

    What a terrific software development experience and a well designed final product. Do you have any advice for other students who might be interested in software development?

    1. Thank you so much Professor Guarnera. I think being able to understand the client’s requirements and creating a design plan for the application before starting implementation is essential.

    2. Thank you for the compliments Dr. Guarnera. From my personal experience, the most important thing that a student interested in software development can do is to practice designing systems. Over time, they will be able to develop a mental library of useful structures which they can use to design robust software more easily. Practicing their design skill a lot of also helps them develop a sort of instinct that will help when analyzing a software. I would also say that they should practice their Google-fu, seeing that most problems have been experienced and solved by other people and being able to find and make use of these resources makes development a lot less painful.

  9. Pavithra, Quan, and Kien,
    Very nice presentation – you clearly communicated your goals, the results, and your reflections.
    Congratulations!
    What do you think was the most important strategy you used to make your collaboration effective and successful particularly in the remote work environment?

  10. Thank you for your kind words Emily. For me, communication between team members was important. I made sure that I let the others about any progress I had made or challenges I was facing.
