At a news conference today, Columbia Basin College (CBC) renamed its Computer Science program the Lockheed Martin Department of Information Science and Technology. Lockheed Martin has a long history of partnership with CBC including past donations of equipment and expertise to create wireless Internet technology at the CBC campus. Lockheed Martin will donate 100 laptop computers to CBC students this fall. In addition to the laptops, Lockheed Martin announced a list of other initiatives which include technology donations, direct support of CBC programs and initiatives, guest lectures by industry experts, sabbatical opportunities for CBC faculty at Lockheed Martin, and continued support of the CBC Computer Science curriculum. Lockheed Martin Director and General Manager Frank Armijo thanked CBC for the opportunity to support higher education. "Today's actions ensure the continued partnership between Columbia Basin College and Lockheed Martin. This is great for our community and great for business."
