Medicine Hat College launched a new class in their information technology program that is proving to be a popular choice among students. Emerging technologies provides students an opportunity to sample a variety of technologies from home automation and advanced web design to quadcopters and gaming design. There are over 30 topics available and students are able to sign up for six during the year. Instructor Steve Letkeman explains that it is a fun and interactive way to learn. Letkeman adds people traditionally view IT as a career spent writing software or repairing computers, however that isn’t necessarily true and that is apparent in this class. He says that many of the things students learn can apply to many different aspects of life.
