The Event Technology industry is full of high-pay job opportunities in the region including installation professional, live sound audio engineer, lighting designer, projectionist, digital content creator, and project manager.
What is the program?
Outside of 4-year degree college programs at CMU and Point Park, Pittsburgh lacks a facility that can train new technicians in this field at a vocational level. Working alongside seasoned professionals, students of this program will be learning industry skills to assist with such events as

Collegiate events at all of the regions colleges
Conventions with ESWP, The Pittsburgh Japanese Cultural Society, Tekko, Anthrocon, Yumacon, CCO Jubilee, and more.
This program will serve as a primer for teens and young adults looking to work in the event technology industry.
