Welcome to the National Convergence Technology Center

The National Convergence Technology Center focuses on engaging educators, students and businesses to meet workforce needs through the promotion and implementation of convergence technology degree and certificate programs in colleges across the nation.

We enable educators to bring the latest convergence technology information to their classrooms through quality professional development, curriculum assistance, and providing access to technology-enabled instructional support systems through our Convergence College Network program. We facilitate partnerships with the business community and convergence technology industry leaders to guide curriculum development and validate job skills required for future graduates. We also develop strategies to increase the number of students who successfully complete a certificate or degree program and are ready to meet the growing need for skilled specialists in the workforce.
