The Hewlett Packard (HP) Company is the latest corporation to become a Corporate Affiliate of Georgia Tech's Denning Technology & Management Program.
Started in fall 2008, the Denning Technology & Management (T&M) Program is a collaborative effort of the Colleges of Business, Engineering and Computing that is designed to prepare a new generation of leaders who possess both managerial and technological know-how. Participating students from these schools form interdisciplinary teams and work together to develop comprehensive solutions to real-world problems sponsored by Corporate Affiliates, in addition to other coursework.
“We are very excited that Hewlett-Packard has decided to join the Denning Technology & Management Program,” says Linda Oldham, executive director of the program. “Hewlett-Packard operates in more than 170 countries, 40 currencies, and 10 languages. It can offer our T&M students excellent career opportunities. Hewlett-Packard is a technology leader with the resources to recognize leaders, nurture talent, and develop creativity.”
Hewlett-Packard was recently ranked ninth in Forbes’ Top 10 Companies with the happiest young professionals. It was also ranked eighth among Top 50 Employers by Women Engineer Magazine.
Hewlett-Packard joins existing Corporate Affiliates Acuity Brands, Boeing, Capital One, Caterpillar, Elavon, Equifax, Georgia-Pacific, The Home Depot, Interface, Siemens, and Unum.
Adam Carr, IT director for Hewlett-Packard in Alpharetta, Georgia, will represent the company on the Corporate Advisory Panel of the Denning T&M Program. The panel provides strategic guidance for the program while building strong relationships with students.
Students enter the two-year program to earn one of two minors: Engineering & Management or Computing & Management. In their final year of the program, multidisciplinary student teams complete a capstone project for one of the 12 T&M Corporate Affiliates.
