CIS: Emerging Tech Entrepreneurship (Technest)



Preparing Tomorrow's Tech Workforce Today 

In collaboration with MIT (CIS 106: Introduction to Computer Coding Using Python), UC Berkeley (CIS 107: Data Science), Renesas and the Microfacturing Institutes (CIS 108: Internet of Things), and BUS 068: Entrepreneurship, the Technest program is designed to bridge Silicon Valley's wage and skills gap.

As former SJECCD Chancellor Breland stated: "We must open the doors of opportunity in Silicon Valley to students who traditionally have not had access to computer science curriculum." 

The Technest program strives to do just that.


If you'd like to enroll in one of the Technest programs, please fill out the Technest Assessment/Enrollment Form.
More information on the following courses and certificates are on that form, and students who fill it out will be automatically enrolled in the courses they choose (subject to the Instructor's approval):
-- Emerging Tech Entrepreneurship (CIS 106, 107, 108, and BUS 068)
-- Business and Data Analytics (CIS 120, 122, 123, 124)
-- Google IT (CIS 140, 141, 142, 143, 144)

For more information on the program, watch the Fall 2021 orientation (date-specific items relate to the 2021 school year, but otherwise the information is still useful).
