How FUSION Works for Students


The FUSION IT residency is designed for individuals who have earned a two-year degree in related IT programs OR who have completed equivalent university-level course work.


FUSION unites your university education with an applied learning work experience.


The FUSION I.T. residency is a component of the Computer Application Development major at Metropolitan State University (and soon, Minnesota State University – Mankato).


The IT residency happens through an 9-12 month, credit-earning “IT Residency.”


This innovative, paid IT residency, leads to up to two years of experience and MANY connections within the industry which are valuable to your professional career and employment upon graduation (or before)!
