The Advanced Engagement Year
A year-long opportunity for ITAP students to delve into topics at the core of technology.
This tract provides a special thread for ITAP students looking to gain further specialized training on top of their traditional internship experience. Students spend an additional 1-3hrs a month in training sessions and discussions that involve a number of diverse skills and relevant issues associated with information technology such as:
- Digital Ethics
- Social Media
- Big Data
- Tech-focused Entrepreneurism
The training sessions, a mix of hands on learning and open discussion, have multiple goals:
- Provide students with the opportunity to expand their technological knowledge base.
- Allow students the chance to take those advanced skills and contribute back to DePauw via their next internship.
- Better prepare students to take on a 21st century career in our digital age.
The application to the program will open in summer and is available to all current ITAP associates who will be on campus during the fall and spring semesters of the following academic year.
