Minnesota State IT Center of Excellence

Minnesota State IT Center of Excellence is part of an almost 12 year old initiative created by the Minnesota legislature to encourage engagement between students, teachers, IT professionals, and employers in our state to advance IT education. They are tasked with bringing the most wanted IT skills and the most up-to-date technologies to the forefront of what our schools teach and our students learn; with the ultimate goal of creating a workforce that can meet Minnesota’s growing need for IT professionals. The IT Center, known by some as MN ITCOE, does this in many ways including coordinating curriculum development, hosting student competitions and awards, and offering hands-on events to enable the career readiness and success of students.

Minnesota State IT Center of Excellence is located at of Metropolitan State University's facilities.
