Kutztown tech programs accredited
Kutztown University’s Bachelor of Science in computer science and Bachelor of Science in information technology programs have been accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, the global accreditor of college and university programs in applied and natural science, computing, engineering and engineering technology.
ABET accreditation assures that programs meet standards to produce graduates ready to enter critical technical fields as well as being prepared for graduate study.
The process of achieving first-time accreditation requires a cooperative effort on the part of all members of a department as well as effective preparation to assure a successful on-campus visit by ABET representatives.
KU is the only university in the region to offer an accredited Bachelor of Science in information technology degree. Students engage in key aspects of information technology fundamentals, including cybersecurity, networking, database management, systems integration and data analytics.

Air Products gives $25K to St. Luke’s
The Air Products Foundation recently donated $25,000 to St. Luke’s for a second simulation center as the hospital’s Allentown campus.
The Simulation and Skills Center at St. Luke’s Sacred Heart Campus is a dedicated space to advance patient safety and improve patient outcomes, while also allowing health care providers to hone their procedural and clinical decision-making skills, and refine their interprofessional skills, such as communication, collaboration and teamwork.
The centers include simulators (simulators are mannequins that physiologically respond to treatment similarly to what would occur in real-life patients) and standardized patients.
Over the next six months, the new Simulation Center at Sacred Heart will begin to host St. Luke’s nurse residency and family medicine residency programs; OB, ED and surgery fellowships; and student nurse extern courses.
