Business & Industry Leadership Team

Creating and Maintaining an Actively Involved Business & Leadership Team

The Convergence Technology Center’s Business & Industry Leadership Team (BILT) meets quarterly with the three partner colleges to provide guidance to the center in determining employers’ needs in the workplace. Members of the team include companies which are end-to-end convergence technology vendors, companies which are best of breed vendors in the convergence marketplace, companies which integrate in the convergence arena through IT segments, and software companies.
