Information Technology Association

The ITA was founded in 2005 by a group of students interested in learning more about technology and practicing what they had learned in classes. These students also wanted to give to their community through the use of technology and have fostered such projects as working with the Office on Aging and assisting senior citizens with on-line registration of their Healthcare Providers and pharmacological needs; and providing a computer repair clinic to HCC students and the community at a reasonable cost. For the last 4 years the club has offered a “Computer Scholarship” to a deserving student within the TCS division; one student who meets the qualifications is selected by a committee and then given a new PC to help with their studies.

Club meetings are generally brief and conclude with a Tech Talk—an expert in the topical field gives a short presentation or demonstration on a technology subject. Recent topics have included: password cracking, preventing hacking using NetStat, and imaging drives.

The club usually offers several seminars, workshops and field trips each semester. Some of the most popular events have included: soldering workshops, Fluke seminar, C3 Conference, TechNet events, GovSec and trip to MicroCenter. The club sponsors competitive teams in the fields of cybersecurity and computer forensics.
