Dell Recognizes Penn State DuBois IST Program
DuBois – Internationally known computer manufacturer, Dell, has featured the Penn State DuBois Information Sciences and Technology (IST) Program, and Program Leader Jason Long, in a new case study on their website.
Long used Dell computer systems to establish a new training network on which system problems could be accurately simulated. Students can then tackle real world problems in information systems, without having to create actual malfunctions that would ruin their valuable equipment. The innovative approach impressed the people at Dell so much, that they had to look deeper into Long's work, and showcase it on their own site.
The purchase of the new Dell equipment, and establishment of this training system was made possible by grants from the PA Department of Labor and Industry, North Central Workforce Investment Board, Microsoft and local matching dollars.
