Written on 09/19/2023

Ivy Tech Kokomo’s next Tuesday@TheTech will focus on the College’s information Technology programs that will prepare them for exciting careers in the areas of cybersecurity, information technology support and software development.

The open house for prospective students is set for 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 26, on the Kokomo Campus at 1815 E. Morgan St.

“This event is an opportunity to learn about the important jobs available in this growing sector of our economy … and how you can get the skills and certifications you need to be successful, right here at Ivy Tech,” said Tara Kaser, chair of the IT department for the Ivy Tech Kokomo Service Area.

Perhaps you’re interested in cybersecurity/information assurance jobs that work to secure computers, networks, and critical infrastructure. Perhaps the information technology support sector piques your curiosity with jobs building and maintaining computing systems and technology,

Kaser continued. “Perhaps you’d like to learn about software, gaining a foundation in programming, web development and creating apps. Ivy Tech offers the certifications, certificates, and degrees that will qualify you for these jobs.”

Kaser noted average salaries in these industries can range from more than $60,000 to more than $80,000 a year. Students who qualify for Indiana’s Next Level Jobs program may be eligible to have all tuition and mandatory fees paid through the program.

Tuesday@TheTech is a series of monthly events aimed at sharing Ivy Tech’s high-tech facilities and broad range of programming in the Kokomo Service Area, which includes Cass, Fulton, Howard, Miami, Pulaski and Tipton counties.
