From CITI’s first days, industry has been a driving force behind its founding and development. The need for computer science programs to produce graduates who can be integrated into the Massachusetts workforce may have been the initial push, but industry has a driving force behind the higher education ITAC programs.
Industry is vital in all the partnerships CITI seeks to develop. Working together with K-12 and higher education partners, industry provides input on industry standards, hiring needs and brings perspectives on future direction in technical areas.
In addition, CITI as a public/private partnership relies on funding from industry sources to continue to fund innovative programs and create the infrastructure necessary to support IT education at the K-12 and higher education levels.
