The purpose of the "Wireless in Germany" program is to provide University System of Georgia students the opportunity to experience first-hand the myriad applications of wireless technology by active immersion in the culture and society in Germany. CSU will partner with other USG institution so students at these universities can take this class. Europe is at the forefront of wireless and mobile computing. Düsseldorf has recently implemented a WiMax initiative and along with Cologne have a number of wireless developers and users. The headquarter of Vodafone Netherlands is in Maastricht and the headquarters of Deutsche Telecom (T-Mobile) is in Bonn, Germany. During this experience, students will visit various sites to observe how wireless technology is being employed in diverse applications such as medical, industrial, aviation and hospitality businesses. For instance, a visit to a hospital is intended to spark debate over privacy of records and the well-known security issues in wireless networks. A visit to an airport that has implemented wireless accessibility is expected to provide students the opportunity to survey wireless technologies that impact everyday lives and applications.
This experience will be conducted in Dusseldorf, Germany over 10 days, May 17-27, 2008.
