Alumni & Friends

We Love to Hear from you

Since 2012, more than 700 IT graduate students have moved from “talents in training” into the much-needed IT workforce. MSIT alumni are active in the society in various roles ranging from network/database admin, security analyst, to project manager and CIO of large organizations.

We love to hear from our alumni. Drop the program director, Dr. Shirley Tian an email, if you choose to do so. We like to know the ups and downs of your career progress; we want to hear the stories of the collision between what you learned from classrooms and what you faced in the workplace; we would love for you to come back and mentor current students or join our Industry Advisory board. 

In addition, join the IT LinkedIn Group if you have not done so. We like to stay connected with the extended family of IT programs!
