The School of Technology presents Technology Week, March 18-22, 2013 with various events throughout the week. The theme this year is “The Emergence of Technology and Innovation.” Technology and Innovation continues to evolve as it relates to graduates being ready for the 21st century workforce. President Obama has launched a campaign called “Educate to Innovate” in an effort to work with young people to improve their performance in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math). Likewise, the School of Technology advocates preparing innovators for the future.
The purpose of Technology Week is an opportunity to educate, inform, and display the field of technology and its place as a career choice. We bring together School of Technology students, faculty, staff, high school and community college students, and corporate partners to share the story of “Why Technology?” Not only is technology one of the fields that is in a job growth pattern, but it meets the strategic direction of the country in increasing jobs in STEM.
Many activities throughout the week are planned: Monday and Tuesday we showcase the seven undergraduate technology programs, and on Thursday we present both a historical view of Technology as well as the School of Technology. Everyone is invited to attend on Monday, March 18, Tuesday, March 19, and Thursday, March 21. For more information, contact the School of Technology at 336-334-7359.
