I felt confident after graduation because of the knowledge I gained and professional network I built as a student in Cal Lutheran’s MSIT program. As a student, there were numerous opportunities on campus to meet industry professionals through events hosted on campus and at HUB 101. And my classes were taught by instructors who demonstrated the relevance of our education by connecting the information from our classes to the work being done in their current jobs.
