To strengthen links to industry and business affilliates which provides funding for relevant projects for faculty and students, and helps define new areas of study that are relevant to our changing world.
Industry and public-sector collaboration is the key to our success. One way we've opened doors to industry is through Advisory Committees. Our members serve as ambassadors, creating direct recruitment channels with technology leaders. Industry involvement offers experience and practical knowledge to our students and jobs to our graduates. Our network of alumni are also industry affilliates and provide not only guidance to students in their career choices but help them identify funding and job opportunities. ITP students have maintained a very high job placement rate over the last 10 years with industry affiliate support. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The next step in the Strategic Vision will support two endowed chairs for ITP. First, the Frank Barnes Chair (named after ITP co- founder Frank Barnes) will support teaching, research and scholarly leadership on interdisciplinary telecom issues, and will be responsible for both research in this area and the development of the interdisciplinary senior undergraduate courses. Second, the Hatfield chair, a joint appointment between the Law School and ITP, will focus on technology and policy research. The chair holders will be able to address important issues in the communications arena that have overlapping components in public policy, economics and the capabilities of current technology.
