Prepare Students to Lead in IT

00:10 Hi, I’m Dennis Bonilla, executive dean for the College of Information Systems and Technology.
00:16 I want to personally thank you for applying for a role in our faculty.
00:19 I think you’re all aware of the high changes that are going on in the education marketplace and the highly competitive environment that the industry is finding itself in.
00:28 Here at the College of IS and T, however, we are focused on one thing and one thing only, and that is the student experience.
00:35 The faculty is the key part of that student experience, and the last year we’ve been focusing on revising our curriculum to make sure that the curriculum is agile, relevant, and experiential.
00:46 As part of that, we’ve engaged with industry partners to make sure that the content we’re creating for our students is relevant to the employability that they will be seeking after they finish our curriculum.
00:57 It’s a compelling curriculum that drives high engagement, high experiential learning, and an opportunity to be part of a growing IT industry.
01:06 We are also focusing on more of the emerging technologies.
01:09 If you are interested in things like virtual reality, augmented reality, and other types of technologies that are becoming mainstream, this is place for you to want to work.
01:18 We’re driving that through experience centers that we’re creating in our campuses and driving innovation and curriculum development in places that really will drive startup activity, community activity, and community engagement.
01:30 It’s a great and an exciting place to be.
01:33 I hope that you find it a place that you’ll want to work at.
01:35 Thank you very much.
