The AITP student chapter includes 19 Southwest Florida College student members. These students are currently studying to earn either their Associate’s of Science Degree in Computer Programming and Database Management or Network Engineering and Administration, or their Bachelors of Science Degree in Information Technology and Security Systems.

AITP Tampa Chapter President and sponsor, Gary Brelsford, is leading the new group in its mission to develop members’ understanding of technology.

Student members of the new AITP chapter will focus on exploring technology’s role in business and management. The chapter aims to enhance the membership’s professionalism and in-depth knowledge about principles on which the science is built. A major goal is to examine and evaluate the ways in which technology is applied. Problem solving, current developments in the field, and applications that foster productivity and efficiency will be regular topics on the group’s monthly agendas.

Chicago-based AITP is, as it has been for over six decades, championing the human element of the Information Technology profession and is focused on providing a community of knowledge, education and resources to empower its members to reach their true potential as an IT business professional.

Dr. Edward P. Mara of Southwest Florida College said that having an AITP chapter on campus is going to “greatly enhance our student’s career networks and also provide a gathering place for our local technology professionals.”
