Tech Republic dives into the growing need for trained workers in the nation’s civic tech movement, as fields like transportation, environmental management and city planning now require new training to bridge technology and industrial best practices.
Schools like Carnegie Mellon University and The Ohio State University are among the institutional leaders in preparing for this movement, recently launching graduate degrees and certifications in areas like data analytics and public policy with a focus on municipal technological development.
