What Our Alumni Are Saying:

"While at Juniata, I worked for the help desk, solutions center and then as a student server manager for Campus Network Security. In Innovations for Industry, I worked on a secure file transfer project for the Tax and Trade Bureau in Washington, D.C., and built a website from scratch for a medical center. It’s the real situations with real solutions that sets the IT/CS department at Juniata in a class above the rest."
