The technology industry includes a broad and diverse set of businesses that focus mainly on providing technology as a service or the development and manufacturing of technology products . There is no universal agreement about what is considered technology but the big buckets include semiconductors, software, networking, internet, and hardware.

The Technology Community is designed to keep students informed about relevant industry news and connect them with related opportunities.
