The School of Information Technology and Engineering (IT&E) hosts TechTalk 2000 today from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Johnson Center. The event, sponsored by the Northern Virginia Technology Council, gives high school students the opportunity to discuss technology careers with representatives from 100 companies.
The goal of the event is to showcase the strength of Northern Virginia technology companies to help keep bright future workers in the area. More than 200 high school students are expected to attend this day of interactive exhibits, panel discussions, and breakout sessions.
Lloyd Griffiths, dean of IT&E, calls TechTalk 2000 an excellent opportunity for IT&E faculty members “to get to know some of the people from our local IT companies and to speak with bright high school students who are very interested in IT about coming to our school.”
