NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – As new businesses and new opportunities flow in Music City, college students are preparing to step into those open positions, specifically connected to the technology industry.
It’s no secret that tech has become vital in everyday activities, whether you are online or on your cell phone, the technology industry is booming, especially in Nashville.
“We are having growing demands from companies like Oracle and Amazon in the Middle Tennessee area as well as the existing companies like HCA, Tractor Supply, and others who have a high demand for technology skills and competency,” said Robert Tudor, the Director of IT Partnerships with Nashville State Community College.
Tudor explained that the boom is creating more opportunities for students. As more tech companies flock to the Music City, Nashville State Community College has had to adjust its curriculum.
“We are trying to meet those demands within the business,” explained Tudor, “there is a great demand for data analytics. There’s a great demand for software engineers and software developers, and we’re building programs to meet those needs.”
It’s called the Nashville State Coding Bootcamps, a new program that features a partnership with two full-service software development organizations to provide area residents with affordable coding education, industry networking, and hands-on experience.
“The intimacy, the one-on-one between the faculty member and our student to do hands-on configurations of switchers and routers. I think that’s really where the student learns the most,” said Tudor.
