WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) -

After a week of learning from industry experts, some Midwestern State University computer science students gave presentations to show off their new knowledge at Big Blue on Friday.

25 students learned real-life programming skills like ASP.Net, a web development program, and virtual business.

Giovanni Perazzo, a software engineer from iRent, and Rick Barfoot, HRNX Chief Technology Officer. The presentations took place at Dexter Learning on the second floor of Big Blue.

"This week, we've been able to have our students interact and learn from two industry professionals who gave them a business perspective as well as some new software that's out in the market that we've not used in the classroom," Dr. Ranette Halverson, MSU Computer Science Chair, said.

"A lot of these students are looking to get a job after they graduate," Michael Olaya, Dexter Learning owner, said. "They'll actually be able to point to a project they actually built or created would be really helpful, in terms of confidence and competency. Some of the students want to start their own businesses so to learn from a real CTO and to see how to actually deploy an application is really, really helpful."

Barfoot watched the presentations, using Skype, from his office in Canada.
