MISSOULA — When it comes to expanding high tech jobs in Montana a shortage of skilled talent stands in the way, but the University of Montana is teaming up with some big names in the tech industry to change that.

Tech Skills for Tomorrow is an initiative that UM hopes will help students be better prepared for their careers after they graduate.

UM president Seth Bodnar says that its also not just about training students for today but to also make their time spent at the UM future proof.

The initiative is an exciting program that UM hopes will create better trained students for the tech sector which has been a growing field in Montana -- and especially here in Missoula.
