Illinois Institute of Technology has joined the TechReady Illinois initiative to help Illinoisans upgrade their technical skills and boost their careers.
As a member of the TechReady Illinois initiative, Illinois Tech is offering professional certificate programs in cybersecurity, software development, software engineering, and distributed and cloud computing. Tuition rates for these graduate-level certificate programs are greatly reduced through the initiative to help those who may have lost work due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The TechReady Illinois initiative was announced on June 8. It connects universities across the state with nonprofit organizations to help people train for new careers in tech or advance in their current tech careers. Founded by Discovery Partners Institute and P33, TechReady Illinois is a collaborative, statewide effort that brings together Illinois’s top-tier academic institutions, leading employers, and local tech-focused nonprofits.
