Beyond academic rigor, the school is intent on bringing to its students collaborative partnerships with industry, business, government, schools and nonprofit organizations that provide invaluable, real-world learning experiences. This experiential commitment to learning also includes faculty who have, or are presently in, leadership technical positions and businesses. In short, when a student leaves here he or she is competent, confident and a decided asset to their future employers from day one.

One of the greatest challenges to leaders in the tech industry is a shortage of talent.  We prepare the kind of technology talent that will move on to innovative careers in the field, and we are dedicated to teaching our students faith-based service, which is unique in the computing industry.
