The Growing Impact of ITCOE Programs

With the end of the 2019 Academic Year and the start of 2020 around the corner, it is important to evaluate the work the ITCOE has completed. It is equally important to see where we can improve and grow. By looking at the past we can better understand how to shape our future.

Student Impact

We track quantitative and qualitative factors around Engagement, Projects Completed, Trainings, Registrations and Event Relevance. We track these factor to ensure that programs and events we create and/or sponsor are fulfilling student needs.

MN State ITCOE impact on Student Engagement

Over the past 5 years we have seen student engagement (number of students who have participated with one or more of the Student Events) go from around 105 to 484.  

CCDC (National Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition) alone has seen over 100% increase from 2015 to last year.

MN State ITCOE impact on Student Learning

Beyond just numbers we have also begun to track relevance and success of student programs. Below are two graphs showing the relevance and overall satisfaction of the National CCDC Event. This is just one example of how the work we are doing is helping student learning move forward.

MN State ITCOE impact Across the State of Minnesota

Although our offices are situated on the Metropolitan State University campus, our reach goes beyond these walls. The reach also goes beyond the Twin Cities as we continue to connect with campuses outside of the Metro area and we strive to make sure that any and all students in an IT related field have an opportunity to engage and be part of our events.

Over the past five years we have seen our impact on students across the State of Minnesota grow from 10 unique campuses to now 18. This means that half of the colleges in the Minnesota State System have students that are participating in our events. With 28 colleges and universities offering courses or programs in IT, MN State IT COE now has 18 of them linked in to our programs.

The Future

In five years we have come a long way, but there is more to do! In 2020 we hope to increase our student engagement by offering more events and increase the effectiveness and learning from our current events. An additional goal is to understand the impact hands-on learning events have on student academic and employment success. Our goal is to enhance the IT opportunities for students and faculty that moves all of Minnesota State IT forward.

As our past has shown, we cannot and will not be successful without YOU! You are the reason we work hard to provide these opportunities and our hope is that you continue to be part of our success!
