STRATA Networks announced today that they have pledged to donate $135,000 to UBTech to help fund a technology-based training program for students in the Uintah Basin. STRATA’s donation will be awarded over a three-year period with $30,000 being contributed annually to help fund equipment and operational costs, and an additional $15,000 per year to be awarded in scholarships.
“Technology and broadband are some of the driving forces in the ways we communicate with each other, conduct business, and lead our daily lives,” STRATA General Manager/CEO Bruce Todd said. “As we watch this evolution & our dependency on technology grows, the need for relevant training & education in the Basin has become essential if we want to continue living in a connected world and prepare students for a technology-driven workforce.”
“The program will be offered in August 2018 and will be available to both secondary students and adults,” said UBTech President Aaron Weight. “Curriculum will focus on all aspects of information technology including the design, development, support, and management of computer software, hardware, and networks.”
Those interested in learning more about the program and the scholarships available are encouraged to keep an eye on the UBTech website found at ubtech.edu.
