Historically Black North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro recently received approval from the University of North Carolina board of governors to launch a new bachelor’s degree program in information technology. The new degree program will be the eighth undergraduate degree program offered by the university’s School of Technology. The new program will launch in 2015.
Benjamin Uwakweh, dean of the School of Technology at North Carolina A&T, stated: “Few programs throughout the country have placed emphasis on training the next generation of students to support mainframes/enterprise systems. This degree is a tremendous opportunity for A&T to address the needs of the community and to become one of the top programs in the country with a focus on mainframe education.”
