Education

Academics

While CTG UAlbany is not a degree-granting organization, we have close ties to academic programs at the University at Albany through our work in teaching, mentoring and advising students, as well as the design and development of specific courses.

We develop and teach courses within the nationally-ranked GISM concentration at Rockefeller College of Public Affairs & Policy and have teaching and mentoring partnerships with Rock College and the College of Emergency Preparedness, Homeland Security and Cybersecurity for students pursuing a Ph.D. in Information Science.


Leadership, Workforce Development

Using the insights and knowledge we have gained over the last 25 years, CTG UAlbany prepares government and non-profit professionals to innovate successfully and provide public value.

We offer 1-5 day long classes using our standard curriculum or customized programs.

CTG UAlbany teaches these classes at our institute in Albany, NY or in a location preferred by the partner.

Frequently requested courses include:

  • The 21st Century Government Leader as an ICT Change Agent
  • Government Information as a Public Asset
  • ICTs in the 21st Century: Impact and Opportunity

 


Students

Student Interns

CTG UAlbany has worked with many graduate and undergraduate students at the University at Albany for the last 25 years. Students come from multiple and diverse departments across the university, reflecting the socio-technical approach we use in our projects.

Some of the departments represented are Public Administration and Policy, Information Science, Computer Science, Communication, Criminal Justice, Education, and the School of Business, among others.

As part of our Student Technology Innovations Lab Experience (STILE) program, we offer funded graduate assistantships and student assistant positions through externally funded research and other projects we bring into the University.

In partnership with UAlbany colleges and departments, CTG UAlbany also serves as a site for academic (for credit) internships. There is also the opportunity for independent studies, particularly for doctoral students.
