The College of Information and Communications Technology (CICT) held the “CICT Meetup 2017: ICT Academia-Industry Collaboration” on March 9, 2017 at the WVSU Cultural Center. This event brought the CICT students and Iloilo City’s IT industries together for an afternoon of positive collaboration, partnership, and information.
CICT Dean Dr. Joel T. De Castro expressed how this event can further strengthen the relationship between the academe and the booming IT industries. “There is a big gap between school and the BPO/IT companies because IT schools and training couldn’t keep up with the rapid advancement of technology. It is continually evolving, and it is always a challenge for schools with IT programs to level with the industry that is presently uplifting Iloilo City”.
