Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company in Marietta, Georgia, wanted to transform a surplus of engineers from traditional areas into software engineers, whom it found hard to attract and keep as employees. LM Aero-Marietta approached Southern Polytechnic State University to plan and offer a software engineering retraining program. This program turns traditionally trained aerospace engineers into software engineers through 30 weeks of university coursework and a company practicum. The lessons learned are not unique; for instance, what works on one project can't necessarily be replicated.
