BATEC is a Center of Excellence for Computing and Information Technologies. We are a national center with academic partners in four urban cities, Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas and San Francisco.

Our name, BATEC, reflects our mission: “Broadening Advanced Technological Education Connections”. Simply said, we are dedicated to increasing both the capacity and the robustness of career-focused pathways in the fields of Computer Science, Information Technology, Computer Networking and Data Analysis.
