CodeIT 2.0 is a one-day IT training & workforce development initiative hosted by the SC Technical College System Office. Like the CodeIT Academy, CodeIT 2.0 targets SCTCS female students enrolled in IT programs and faculty/staff with IT-related responsibilities.
Any student enrolled or interested in IT at one of our 16 technical colleges is eligible to apply, though preference will be given to female students in the field of IT.
Faculty and staff attendees are nominated at the college level. Sessions will include a female IT student recruitment workshop, an accessible learning materials development workshop, and a technology tools showcase. Interested faculty and staff should contact the Chief Academic Officer at your college.
CodeIT 2.0 will also feature a competitive CodeTank where students will have the opportunity to showcase their IT solutions to a panel of expert judges. First, second, and third prizes will be awarded to the top student presenters. We encourage all students and all ideas, no matter how big or small, and no matter the stage of development. To apply, please indicate your interest in your application.
