Ontario Systems Opened ‘The Cube’

Ontario Systems opened ‘The Cube’ on the Anderson University campus, Jan. 23. ‘The Cube,’ short for Talent Incubator, is a hands-on tech incubator that will provide computer science majors with hands-on software engineering training – both in paid internships and part-or-full-time jobs.

“Our students can learn valuable skills as interns with Ontario Systems professionals right on AU’s campus both during the academic year as well as the summer,” President John Pistole explained.

The new opportunity is a source of excitement on all sides. “Our students tell us that the exposure to new technology, challenges, and team lessons are critical to them both during their time with us and as they transition into their professional life after graduation,” said Dr. Jennifer Coy, Chair, Department of Computer Science; Professor of Computer Science & Physics. The Cube is poised to meet this need.

At Ontario Systems,  they are looking to make a positive difference for young people, but the impact will be felt by the business as well. “The relationship building that will take place helps us build our talent pipeline, the very lifeblood of our growing business,” said Jason Harrington, President of Ontario Systems.

These relationships matter on campus. “Anderson University believes in the importance of collaboration and real-life professional experiences for our students,” said Coy. This sense of community is central to the experience of being at AU.

Anderson University is on a mission to educate students for lives of faith and service, offering more than 60 undergraduate majors, 30 three-year degrees, 20 NCAA Division III intercollegiate sports, alongside adult and graduate programs. The private, liberal arts institution is fully accredited and recognized among top colleges for its business, computer science, cybersecurity, dance, engineering, nursing, and teacher education programs. Anderson University was established in 1917 in Anderson, Indiana, by the Church of God.
