December 10, 2018 – The College of Information Technology (CIT), through the effort of its dean, Dr. Riz Rupert L. Ortiz, has once again provided means for the college to be kept updated and informed with ICT trends.
Called Network Café, it is an avenue for CIT students, faculty, and invited IT professionals to sit down and compare notes about the latest trends and development in the field. The first of its series took place on December 7 with Mr. Franics Mark Mawo as the guest resource person.
Mawo, who calls himself a digital nomad, is an IT freelancer based in Ecuador. He shared experiences on freelancing over the internet. Even without his physical presence, the participants were kept interested in his talk that are based on first-hand experience as a practitioner. He also shared some platforms or websites where freelancing could be done.
Dr. Nacny L. Getalado, director for International Affairs and CIT faculty, also shared an overview of International Mobility. Program chairs of the various CIT programs also presented updates and other relevant information about their respective fields.
The college aims to sustain the activity in the coming years so that the knowledge in ICT of the students are updated and could provide a glimpse of what they could do as future ICT practitioners.
