Onsite evening courses begin this fall at Cayuse Technologies.
July 6, 2012
PENDLETON, Ore. (EOU) – The first group of students to complete the new computer programming courses available at Cayuse Technologies in Umatilla County received certificates from Eastern Oregon University last month.
Earning credentials in their field are Brady Murry, Jack Warrington, Jack Peters and William Hampton. Murry, Warrington and Peters are currently employed at Cayuse Technologies and were able to complete their certificate programs while continuing to work.
Creating opportunities like this for continued professional growth is the long-term goal of both EOU and Cayuse Technologies. The two organizations have worked together since 2008 to model a plan addressing Cayuse’s need for trained technical professionals and EOU’s interest in providing well-planned, accessible and relevant education.
“Current employment opportunities and a vision of future educational needs in our region resulted in EOU’s partnership with Cayuse Technologies,” said Marie Hall, director of the EOU Umatilla/Morrow County Regional Center. “It is exciting to see a new educational and career pathway develop in northeast Oregon.”
The collaboration brought to fruition four certificates of completion in computer programming, intermediate computer programming, systems engineering and web development. Programs are designed to provide quickly obtained credentials for students and better prepare employees for success at Cayuse Technologies and entering the computer science industry.
The certificates are accredited through the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, EOU’s regional accrediting body.
Evening courses in computer science began last fall at Cayuse headquarters near Pendleton. Greg Schulberg, a Cayuse Technologies employee, is the instructor.
Richard Croft, associate professor of computer science and multimedia at EOU, Alanna French, of Cayuse Technologies and David Stich, of Accenture – Cayuse Technologies’ business partner – collaborated on the curriculum.
Onsite courses for the coming academic year are ramping up to begin again in September. For more information contact Hall at 541-278-5777 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
