Industry In Residence Program

Bridging the gap between the workplace and the classroom

Dunwoody College of Technology is launching an Industry in Residence program for Fall 2023. The pilot program will partner with businesses to provide teaching opportunities to industry members who are interested in teaching a single-semester in their area of expertise.

Industry in Residence instructors will bring their real-world applications into the classroom, allowing students the opportunity to learn from those currently working in their field of study.

Businesses choosing to partner with Dunwoody for this innovative new program will be educating the next generation of skilled professionals needed in their industry.

” Many companies have approached Dunwoody to explore ways to deepen their connection with the college, our students, and graduates. Many have challenged us to develop more ways for them to contribute to our student’s education and foster additional opportunities to connect with students beyond our annual industry and career activities. We are excited that so many industry partners are eager to develop this deeper connection. “
