"Digital arts is something that is necessary globally in every aspect of a business. I like to teach students to look at the world through the lens of a digital artist. To be able to light that spark in someone else and help them to find their pathway to success, there's nothing better than that"
International Technological University (ITU) continues to lead in the field of industry-linked education, research and in understanding the needs of underrepresented students pursuing graduate degrees, specifically Hispanic and Latino students in STEM fields.
"I work with the students to develop a really sophisticated IOT, with interesting applications such as energy management, wearables for health monitors, battery management for electrical vehicles, and voice control for controlling robotics."
"In the short 3-month course, I was able to build simple applications, know the flow and pipeline, starting from scratch to the final mobile product. Learning this pipeline and workflow helped me find a job at a start up company."
"After my first documentary course with professor Allen White, I just fell in love with filmmaking. He encouraged me to go further and that’s where my life took a turn. My internship with Epic Church San Francisco as their video storyteller opened many doors..."
"It is important that you ask questions during your internship. People are not going to be annoyed because they expect that from you and it shows to the employer that you are engaged and you want to learn more."
"I chose ITU because it helped me in getting my second masters. I already have a masters in Interior Design and I wanted to do something different. My Masters in Business Administration has really helped me broaden my horizons."
"All that I have learned here about management I’ve been able to apply it, real time. This is what I find valuable. I want to learn something not just learn it and to forget it and not want to apply is again. Not just something theoretical, I want to learn something I can take and I can use it."
Most of the students here at ITU are working in high-tech companies in the heart of Silicon Valley, and I think that is really unique. Learning from all these different people from different backgrounds is extremely enriching for me....
