CNST Advisory Committee
Texas State Technical College was created by the Texas Legislature and mandated to carry out technical and vocational training for which there is a demand in the state. In order to carry out this mandate, the College identifies technical and vocational needs and designs and develops educational programs to meet these needs.
To ensure that programs are relevant to the community, address current industry standards, meet workforce needs, and have appropriate resources to support high quality student outcomes, Advisory Committees are required for each technical program.
Our Advisory Committee consists of a distinguished group of professionals who provide us feedback and advice designed to ensure that program curriculum is relevant, up-to-date and focused on best practices in the industries we serve. Their knowledge of training needs and worker competencies is invaluable to our program.
The input of the Advisory Committee enables the department to identify training requirements, as mandated by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. The Committee's input is necessary to the process of defining the job skills and knowledge required to train highly-qualified workers with the professional skills for immediate employment in the fields of computer network support, administration, and security.
