Subcommittee Meetings
  • Subcommittee meetings were held on 3/27, 4/30,
    5/30,6/27, 8/14, 9/24, 10/29, and 11/21
  • Faculty Chair meeting on 9/27
  • Meeting with Dean on 10/11
  • Attendance has ranged been between 4 and 10
    industry representatives at each subcommittee

Subcommittee Focus
  • The subcommittee has focused its efforts in two
    key areas
  • Raising the profile of IT programs in the School
    of Engineering Technology (85 of focus)
  • Identifying and driving improvements in the
    Schools internship programs (15 of focus)

IT InitiativeBackground
  • On August 14, 2002 the DIAC IT Subcommittee held
    a regular meeting during which significant
    discussion involved the topic of whether the
    school and the university are appropriately
    coordinating their efforts with respect to the
    various IT educational programs offered. A small
    group was identified to articulate the thoughts,
    concerns and recommendations of the Subcommittee
    to the Dean and his staff.

IT InitiativePre-existing Conditions
  • It is difficult and confusing to a prospective
    student or a member of industry to understand
    where within IUPUI one might find programs
    related to information technology (IT).
  • Although, the ET School has been highly
    successful in placing its graduates into IT
    careers, there is little public exposure to this
  • IT courses and programs are offered and
    espoused by several departments within the Purdue
    School of Engineering Technology CPT, CGT,
    ECE and MET. While each of these offerings is
    under the umbrella of the ET School, they seem
    separate from one another when viewed from the
    perspective of an outsider.
  • The situation is made more confusing to outsiders
    as there are also IT-related educational
    opportunities offered by the School of
    Informatics, the Computer Science department and
    the Kelley School of Business.
  • CONCLUSION Mass confusion exists!

IT InitiativeProposed Solutions
  • Name a director-level staff member, reporting to
    the Dean, that would have responsibility for the
    coordination of all IT-related educational
    opportunities within the School.
  • Change the name of the Department of Computer
    Technology to the Department of Computer and
    Information Technology.
  • Use Tech Connect 2003 as a launch vehicle for
    the new message. Develop new literature
    specifically for this event and beyond that best
    tells the story.
  • Create a new web site that can be used as an
    information source and recruiting tool to draw
    perspective IT students to the School. Create a
    brand image for the IT career programs at the

  • Name a director-level staff member, reporting to
    the Dean, that would have responsibility for the
    coordination of all IT-related educational
    opportunities within the School.
  • A meeting between Dean Yurtseven and DIAC IT
    Subcommittee members Mike Winter and Bernie
    Sepaniak resulted in the identification of the
    strongest perspective candidate within the School
    (Greg Smith).
  • Dean Yurtseven took the initiative to meet with
    Mr. Smith and then his department chairs. Winter
    and Sepaniak met with Mr. Smith as well.
  • To our great pleasure, Greg Smith has accepted
    the responsibility.

IT InitiativeProgress on Solutions
  • Change the name of the Department of Computer
    Technology to the Department of Computer and
    Information Technology.
  • In a meeting with the Dean and two IT
    Subcommittee members, the logistics of effecting
    a name change was discussed.
  • This proposed name change has system-wide
  • DIAC can best help by drafting a letter of
    support to Dr. William M. Plater, Executive Vice
    Chancellor and Dean of Faculties
  • This letter has been drafted and is ready to send.

  • Use Connect Tech 2003 as a launch vehicle for
    the new message. Develop new literature
    specifically for this event and beyond that best
    tells the story.
  • All school IT related programs will be combined
    into a single IT session at Connect Tech.
  • Engineering and Technology IT area will be
    physically separated from other IT related campus
  • Special presentation session in auditorium
    planned to formally announce schools IT

    brand image for the IT career programs at the
  • Website formal roll-out at Connect Tech 2003.
  • Website to incorporate interest survey instrument.

Internship ProgramPrevious Recommendations
  • Recommendations
  • School needs to strive for more consistency
    within the departments
  • Very little incentive for student to pay for 3
    credits hours and receive 1 credit hour applied
    toward their academic program
  • Higher application of credits or, no credit
    (informal) but place the experience on the
    students transcript or, non-transcript
    certificate issued by the school

Internship ProgramProgress
  • Meeting held on 7/8 to review current programs
  • Memo was drafted on 9/23 to describe the current
    situation and suggest improvements. This memo
    has been under review by the subcommittee
  • The School has made some policy changes with
    respect to credit hours that bring more
    uniformity across departments.
