TECH WEEK, EXTREME IT DAY EXPECTED TO DRAW CROWDS TO CAMPUS

The School of Technology kicked of its second annual Technology Week, Monday, March 17, with a host of events that will run through Friday, March 21. 

Technology Week is designed to expose students to the field of technology while providing them with information and tools necessary in making effective career choices.

More than 1,200 students from surrounding colleges, universities and high schools are expected to attend activities taking place in Smith Hall and the New Academic Building.

Corporate sponsors include John Deere, IBM, Cisco, First Citizens Bank, MetLife, USAA, Viacom Infinity, Inc., ClearBlade, Fidelity, Dell and ITology. Students will be able to interact first hand with sponsors and gain hands-on experience in different aspects of the field of technology.

Extreme IT Day, Tuesday, March 18, is set to attract more than 400 high school and college students.

“The purpose behind Extreme IT Day is to solidify the pipeline between surrounding high schools and allowing college students to [hopefully] leave with a job” said Cameron Seay, assistant professor and Extreme IT Day coordinator.

Extreme IT day allows students to interact with leading industry partners and develop their leadership and STEM skills.
