The Office of Information Technology Enhancement Fund provides opportunities for you to invest in people who are passionate about providing technological innovations to improve the lives of others:
- Project Management Lite (PML) Program
In the OIT PML Program, students acquire “for hire” experience. Working with our seasoned IT professionals, students gaining invaluable experience in software and web development, cybersecurity, networking, system administration, technological support as well as IT communications and training. This on-the-job training leverages students’ talents and, at the same time, exposes them to a future career that aligns with their academic and personal pursuits. The PML Program is open primarily to juniors and seniors in NC State’s Poole College of Management and the Department of Computer Science.
- New Graduate Fellowship Program
The graduate fellowship will expand our efforts to support large-scale research activities with the assistance of graduate students and industry professionals. It will fund the graduate student’s stipend and additionally provide a research project for a thesis or dissertation. The fellowship will also provide opportunities for industry professionals to collaborate closely with other industry partners to develop innovative uses of their products.
- Community Outreach efforts
Our outreach efforts allow us to meet technology needs within and beyond the Wolfpack community. Currently, we are helping to develop municipal partnerships via the NCNGN.org and WestNGN initiatives to provide broadband to rural areas in North Carolina. We are also exploring ways to leverage land-grant universities and the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service to bring data science capability to rural areas to grow economic prosperity. With your help, we can do more.
PackTV is NC State’s sports station and is driven entirely by student employees. Through PackTV’s on-the-job training, students learn how to shoot, compose, edit, and direct videos. They work independently and in teams in high-pressure, real-life sports broadcasts. Their work experiences allow them opportunities to become skilled multimedia journalists, well-versed in remote video production and package creation. PackTV employment is open to all NC State students.
- Staff Enrichment
OIT employees are our most valuable assets and future innovators. Investing in our employees allows us to be the best at what we do. The Staff Enrichment fund will provide OIT staff access to professional resources to strengthen or develop new competencies and skills; it also will enable them to become thought leaders in their respective fields and to actively participate and share their knowledge with other IT professionals.
