Join us and contribute towards closing the tech skills gap

Our Advisory Comittee meets three times a year to discuss the quality of graduates, the content of our curriculum and its relevance to industrial and societal needs.

The Board advises on ways to strengthen training and community links between the Institute and Industry.

We are always looking for leaders of industry to contribute through activities such as involvement on the Advisory Board.

Please contact our General Manager if you are interested in becoming a member.

Empowering women in tech and redefining the industry

We are committed to empowering women in tech to create a diverse and inclusive culture. That’s why the CTIA team is made up of over 40% women. We hope to do our part to empower every person we work with every day to strive for progressive, inclusive, and equal workplaces now and for our future generations.

Today’s tech industry faces an ongoing and visible issue: there simply are not enough women in the field. Every day that new women join the tech industry, more women have the opportunity to become leaders and empower other women to do the same.
