Filling technology jobs can be a challenge for many businesses across the Valley. They need engineers and software developers, technical support staff and project managers.

That’s where the Maricopa County Community College District hopes to make a difference. The District will launch its new Information Technology Institute in Mesa this fall. 

Dr. Linda Collins is department chair of Business and Information Systems at Mesa Community College. She’s a key player in creating the IT Institute which she says spun out conversations with different businesses and a project with Apple.

Collins joins The Show's Christina Estes to talk about the program.
