Connecting to Industry

On a regular basis, the College of Computing and Technology brings in industry professionals from a variety of local companies for "office hours," where students can come and interact with them, make connections and learn from their experiences. Professionals take over an office on-campus, where students can come and meet them, and ask questions targeted to the professionals’ areas of expertise.
