Mizzou and AT&T offer course on how 5G can tackle community problems
One of President Barack Obama's well-known quotes just resurged in the media, thanks to a new book which gets its title from a very relevant (notably in this election year) quote: "We are the change that we seek." And that change has resonated with 19 University of Missouri (Mizzou) students; Mizzou and AT&T launched the course "Connectivity and 5G," which explores the impact of wireless technology. Connectivity and 5G will explore advanced wireless technology's impact on campus environments.  It uses a multidisciplinary approach with both students and instructors from a variety of fields of study, including business, engineering, journalism, and architectural studies.  Students earn course credits for projects, which may potentially inform new use cases and user experiences in the areas of education, healthcare, public safety, sports, entertainment, to name a few.
