Testimonials

Archie Petin, Class of 2020,
My discovery of and enrollment in the CIT Department has been the most rewarding and enjoyable experience in my life thus far — especially with the Game Development classes that were a part of my emphasis. Everything that I learned can be directly applied to what I want to do in the future; whether they be technical application or a certain method to a problem.  This, as well as the various opportunities available at Marshall, has culminated in me landing a job at Lockheed Martin as a Systems Integration Analyst before I even graduated from Marshall.

Curtis Darst, Class of 2007,
My current role at West Virginia Department of Education is to develop software solutions that benefit the 20,000+ educators and 275,000+ students in the state of WV.  The CIT program provided me with the skills to enter the workforce and stand out from fresh graduates.  CIT’s focus on real world assignments teach skills that theory based practicum cannot.  I finished my degree in CIT and the next Monday was working full time as a developer in Charleston with a full set of skills that met my employers needs. The CIT program truly sets students for success in the technology tracks that they provide
