EPCC Represented at the 29th Annual HENAAC Great Minds in STEM

Eight students from El Paso Community College (EPCC) and The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) attended the 29th Annual Hispanic Engineer National Achievement Awards Conference (HENAAC) Great Minds in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) (GMiS), that took place in Pasadena, California earlier this month.

“I am proud to educate the future ethical hackers from society.” Dr. Christian Servin, EPCC Instructor of Informational Technology Systems, said. “Training these young minds in developing computational thinking through cybersecurity concepts and witness their success, make me proud to teach in an accessible community environment.”

EPCC students who currently are recipients of the Computer Science S-STEM Scholarship (through a unique partnership between Computer Science program at EPCC and the Computer Science department at UTEP) and students who developed research under the supervision of Dr. Servin, attended to the conference and presented a poster presentation with the results of the research.

Students who attended the conferences were able to participate in a Hackathon with more than 110 students from different universities and community colleges.

The Hackathon was composed of preliminaries workshops including concepts in cybersecurity, operating system environment setups and tools tutorials.

In addition, students attended developmental workshops that aid students in increasing their communication skills and resume writing.

As part of the conference students met with current Google, Microsoft, Shell, Intel, Locked Martin, NASA and other companies. EPCC is committed to preparing students to be competitive in workforce locally and nationally.
