DAYTON— The Miami Valley Career Technology Center (MVCTC) Computer Repair and Technical Support class recently spent a day with the Wright State University CaTS Department. The CaTS department provides technical support for all computers and users on the Wright State campus. Students learned about the ServiceNow IT ticketing system, toured the Help Desk and Desktop support departments and viewed the University Data Center. This field trip allowed the Computer Repair and Technical Support students to see firsthand the many employment opportunities in computer support at a large educational institution as well as the systems they have in place to support an organization of this size.
This field trip provided students with a chance to network with Computer Science college students and IT professionals and see their lab skills applied in the real world. Mrs. Amy Sugden, MVCTC Computer Repair and Technical Support instructor said of the field trip, “This field trip allowed my students to see the many opportunities that WSU has to offer in computer science education, student employment and computer science careers.”
MVCTC Computer Repair and Technical Support seniors include Hunter Bardnell (West Carrollton), Julianne Cramer (Eaton), James Lester (Wayne), Tyler Lowery (Trotwood), Sean Malott (Northmont), Khalil Phu (Wayne), Kyler Smith (Twin Valley South), Zachary Spencer (Tri-Village), Mackenzie Turpin (Eaton), and Ethan Wright (Northmont).
