OSTEMMP Day in the Life of a Researcher STEM Mentorship Program

Oklahoma NSF EPSCoR RII Award No. OIA-1301789

The Oklahoma Information Technology Mentorship Program (OITMP) was established under Oklahoma's National Science Foundation Inter-Campus and Intra-Campus Cyber Connectivity (C2) grant, "Oklahoma Optical Initiative" (EPS-1006919).  It has now evolved into the OneOklahoma Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics Mentorship Program (OSTEMMP), under Oklahoma's National Science Foundation EPSCoR Research Infrastructure Improvement Track-1 grant, "Adapting Socio-ecological Systems to Increased Climate Variability" (OIA-1301789).  The project is under the direction of Dr. Henry Neeman, director of the University of Oklahoma Supercomputing Center for Education and Research.

Workshops are held at sites across the state and cover topics such as networking, security and Web development.  Attendees will find answers to questions such as: 

  • What is it like to be a network professional?
  • What are the day to day experiences?
  • What issues of professionalism, customer service, project management and career growth does a network professional encounter?
  • How can you prepare yourself to be a more attractive job candidate, and what do network professionals look for in prospective employees?
  • What is the structure of the network design at certain institutions?
