Abstract The Information Technology discipline is defined as meeting the needs of users within organizational or societal context through the selection, creation, administration, integration, and application of computing technologies [1]. Successful IT professionals are those with strong hands-on, communication, and problem solving skills [2]. The need for skilled IT professionals continues to grow in many subareas such as mobile development, Cybersecurity, administration of cloud services, and others [5]. The information technology profession's demand for strong hands-on skills puts pressure on colleges to produce graduates with increased level of skills. However, the 3-5 years that students spend in college may not be enough to build the level of hands-on skills expected by employers.
