Carolina Institute of Technology (CIT) was founded in 2017 when Dr. Neset Hikmet set out to create an arena that supports CS, IT, and STEM. It is CIT's goal to:

  • Create a computing innovation community that is mutually supportive
  • Facilitate an experiential-learning environment
  • Foster brainstorming, creativity and innovation

CIT offers a variety of opportunities for you to vault into IT and CS. Join us for a training workshop, a school trip, competition, networking event or just come by to hang out.

The facility includes a 10-person boardroom, 3 staff offices, 3 independent thinking offices, and collaborative workspace in the open environment of the Vault.
