College welcomes local professionals to advisory event, unveils data center for students

Ivy Tech Community College Northeast is hosting an Advisory Committee Open House tomorrow. Each of the College’s 50+ programs has an advisory committee of local professionals and Ivy Tech Northeast employees to help keep program curriculum relevant and up-to-date.

The open house event serves as a “thank you” to committee members. More than 100 people have RSVP’d to the event.

After the general open house, the School of Computing and Informatics advisory committee will have its meeting, in part to view the College’s new data center for students in the Cyber Security, Network Infrastructure, Information Technology Support, and Server Administration programs. These are four of the eight programs that make up the School.

“It’s an environment for our students to get a feel for what a real data center is and build servers,” says department chair Darryl Togashi, who oversees the above four programs.

The new center will allow students to get a hands-on education with equipment that they previously learned about only theoretically, he says.

The space includes a forensics lab and racks, which are shelving units to house servers that run five classrooms.
