Wake Technical Community College: A hub for tech training
Appeared as part of the Community College sponsored section in the March 2019 issue.
Wake Tech’s newest campus, in Morrisville, connects higher education with industry – and offers a collaborative approach to education and training.
“Innovation fuels the RTP Campus,” says incoming Wake Tech President Dr. Scott Ralls. “It is strategically positioned to meet the workforce training needs of the community that surrounds it.”
RTP Campus programs are designed for high-tech professionals, offering specializations in cybersecurity, business analytics, project management, network management, and more. Wake Tech’s industry partnerships ensure that students are learning the latest technologies and most relevant skills, with opportunities for work-based learning.
Tom Looney, retired Lenovo executive and Chair of Wake Tech’s Board of Trustees, says tech companies know that their industry depends on highly-skilled workers – and are embracing the role they play in providing specialized training. “By partnering with Wake Tech, companies know they’ll have a workforce that’s ready to go on ‘day one’.”
The RTP Campus houses Wake Tech’s Corporate and Business Solutions, which provides customized corporate training and industry credentialing. The campus also offers degree options for transfer to a university.
A second building planned for the campus will focus on biotechnology training. Learn more at rtp.waketech.edu. #WakeTechRTP
