UNI's Dept. of Technology students in high demand

Enrollment in UNI's Department of Technology is expected to increase significantly in the fall and it's easy to see why. The department offers six undergraduate degrees, two graduate programs and a 90 percent job placement rate.

"There's a big demand for our graduates," said department head James Maxwell. "I get calls from businesses all the time, people saying, 'We've got an opening.'"

The high demand and increased interest in this field makes sense. According to Maxwell, "What drives America is manufacturing and technology."

Alicia Jessip: No stranger to UNI

Alicia Jessip, a junior communication studies major with a double minor in Spanish and political science, is paving the path to her future at the University of Northern Iowa. As the first member of her family to attend college, she knows how to accomplish the goals she has set for herself.

"I don't want to take this opportunity for granted," Jessip says. She has taken full advantage and become involved in many of the opportunities presented at UNI.
