MSA Hosts Local Vo-Tech Students

StudentsMSA continues its tradition of supporting the next generation of data scientists by hosting a group of students from A. W. Beattie Career Center.  Known locally as Beattie Tech, the vocational school, located in Allison Park, PA, provides industry career and college-ready instruction in 18 program areas for students in grades 10-12 enrolled from various Pittsburgh area school districts.

Kevin Whitfield, IMS Applications Group Director in MSA’s Information Management Solutions division (IMS), acts as an advisor to the school and helps by reviewing curriculum and providing advice for instructional programs in the data management and analytics field.  "Students in these technology areas visit IMS regularly," Kevin says, "in order to see how our IT department functions and to view agile project management methodology in action."
