Professor Mark Voortman, Ph.D.
Hello, I am an Assistant Professor of IT as well as Program Coordinator of the IT Program in the School of Business and have been at Point Park University since April 2014. Almost immediately after I joined, my colleagues and I undertook the major task of revamping the IT program so that we make sure that as soon as you graduate, you will have no trouble finding a job. This website is also a direct result of this update and is running on two brand new servers that you will be using a lot to gain real world experience. We are very excited about the new program that will equip you with a very solid programming foundation, including web and mobile development. Big data and data analytics are becoming increasingly important and many courses are aimed at making you comfortable and proficient in working with data. Finally, fundamental topics like databases, networks, security, and others have an important place in the new program as well.
When I am not teaching I enjoy watching TV, including series like Breaking Bad and The Wire but also hockey, especially the Pittsburgh Penguins. I also like to exercise and ran my sixth consecutive Pittsburgh marathon in 2016.
