Trowbridge and Surdam: Actionable items for the technology sector of Wyoming
Monday, July 01, 2019
Recently, Gov. Mark Gordon met with Endow and requested that their 20-year strategy be changed into actionable items. One of the five strategies outlined is to continue to work on and support the “knowledge and creative industries.” The Array School of Technology and Design is excited to see an emphasis placed on the technology industry. Additionally, we would like to offer some suggestions for actionable items for Endow and the citizens of Wyoming to consider.
For those of you unaware of Array, we are Wyoming’s first and only accelerated computer programming and design school. Since opening in 2016, Array has successfully trained four cohorts, and our next class begins in September. Each of our courses is five to seven months long and has had an average of eight students. Our students learn web programming, computer science fundamentals and graphic design. Of those graduates that either were successfully placed in a full-time position or started their own companies, 100 percent acquired technology jobs in Wyoming with an average starting salary of $44,773.55.
