Business Management and Information Technology students got a unique academic opportunity in the spring of 2015, a course on Silicon Valley. But "The Energy of Silicon Valley" isn't only a course taught in a classroom in Milton. Ten students and two of their professors traveled to the West Coast to experience the hub of business and tech first-hand.
Shawn Edge '08 was always that neighborhood kid who got called over to a friend's house to set up a VCR or troubleshoot on the computer. By the time he started his college search a dozen years later, he knew he wanted to major in information technology and gain hands-on practical experience, and the Curry College program seemed like a perfect fit.
Congratulations to members of the Curry applied technology faculty for their on-going professional accomplishments!
