The Cybersecurity and Technology Department’s CTE focus is on preparing students for entry into the workforce upon graduation. It is essential that students in the ITS and CSEC programs receive instruction that enables them to find careers in industry. In order to meet this goal, the joint Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) provides industry feedback, technical skill, recommendations, networking, and additional opportunities to get involved.
The TAC is composed of primary and secondary stakeholders from the local community. Members add industry expertise, focus, resource assistance and opportunities, and serve as program advocates. The TAC meets regularly each semester and is a valuable partnership between education and industry, representing future employers in the local marketplace (e.g. student-employer mock interviews). A variety of small and large local business volunteers participate in the TAC. They represent private and public institutions including local, state, and federal governments. Please contact Don Williams or department faculty for information on getting involved or for other questions.
