The Association of Information Technology Professionals (AITP) is THE premier networking community for IT professionals worldwide. Nationally, AITP has over 60 professional chapters in over 35 states with four chapters located in Texas. AITP-UHD is a student chapter sponsored by the AITP-Houston professional chapter. As electronic networks are important to an information system’s success, human networks are important to IT professional’s career. AITP connects professionals together. AITP also connects students together with working IT professionals, businesses, as well as other IT-interested students.
Each collegiate chapter of AITP is sponsored by a nearby host-city, professional AITP chapter. Therefore, in addition to participating in UHD AITP chapter activities, such as speaker events and field trips, UHD AITP student members are invited to attend the AITP Houston Chapter monthly networking luncheons, evening socials, as well as other events, such as the annual CIO forum. ATIP prides itself on providing knowledge, resources, and education to its members; moreover, the AITP professional members are especially proud of their organization’s distinctive outreach to universities and AITP’s efforts to promote collegiate students’ interests in IT.
As a Houston-area AITP student chapter, AITP-UHD is especially fortunate to be sponsored by AITP-Houston – a well-connected community of IT professionals, leaders, and civic-minded Houstonians – and to be located within one of the most dynamic, diverse, and technically-sophisticated cities.
Requirements to join AITP-UHD: One must be a degree candidate and either be majoring in a field consistent with information technology or demonstrate particular interest in technology. A student may not be on academic or social probation.
