Summer Interns in the Information Technology Program

Humzah Abdol, Kuncil Jamal, and Brian Bui are having a great time at their summer internship with Alaska Airlines. We are thankful for the opportunities to serve our community. Come join our program and see what exciting opportunities may be waiting for you.

Please join us in congratulating Jumana Karwa and her partner Saurav Tomar (currently based in India) and their sponsor Dr. Mohamed Ali in winning a grant of $60,000 from the Amazon Catalyst program.
Jumana and her partner have developed new methods for compressing educational course videos and other materials for transmission over low bandwidth links (e.g., via cellular, WiFi, or possibly FM). The project is code named “FaceCrop”. The grant is to help develop and productize the idea.
Great job Jumana and keep up the great work! Look forward to seeing it in production. Read more by clicking here.

Greetings from Director

Welcome to the Institute of Technology at UW Tacoma.  Established in 2001, the Institute of Technology has a strong tradition of offering excellent programs while providing student support through small class sizes.  The class sizes in the Institute of Technology average around 30 students per course.  The diverse student body consists of approximately 600 undergraduates and 180 graduate students with a demographic makeup of that population at around 43% Caucasian, 57% Asian, Hispanic, African American, Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, or American Indian.   Currently 17% of our students are women and 15% are underrepresented minorities.
