Programs & Events

We host workshops and engagement events for students to learn about careers in the tech industry. 

Students learn both technical and professional skills including, but not limited to, research study planning, graphical design, coding, prototyping, project management, and executive presenting. They will learn how to use design thinking to go from defining the root of the problem to sharing viable solutions.

In addition to hands-on experience, students will learn about the User Experience field by talking to professionals, viewing project demos, and visiting companies. Interactions between students and companies will help foster relationships and allow students to demonstrate their talent while companies begin the courtship with potential future employees who show promise to become top performers.
