Academic competitions let you flex your skills, individually or in a team, against students from other universities. They also provide opportunities to network with professionals in your field.
The HR Games sponsored by the Society for Human Resource Management consist of game show styled matches of undergraduate students from various colleges and universities. The questions for the matches are divided into categories similar to those used in the Professional in Human Resources (PHR) certification exam. Teams from Indiana Tech have won several state and regional titles at the HR Games.
Our Cyber Defense Team competes in statewide, regional and national competitions. The competitions are designed to test each team’s ability to secure a networked computer system while maintaining standard business functionality. Teams are scored on the basis of their ability to detect and respond to outside threats, including cyber-attack while maintaining availability of existing network services such as mail servers and web servers, respond to business requests such as the addition or removal of additional services, and balance security against varying business needs.
