Two prominent Central Texas businesses have been in partnership with Texas A&M University-Central Texas for the past two years, originally opening offices on campus, offering internships, opportunities for full-time employment, and conducting research.

Centex Technologies is a leading IT consulting company founded in 2006, serving both public and private sectors with a comprehensive suite of IT services. With over 18 years in business, Centex Technologies specializes in DevSecOps, digital marketing, forensics, and cyber solutions. The organization prioritizes innovation and community engagement, building strong ties with local educational institutions to support the next generation of IT professionals.

"Centex Technologies is dedicated to advancing the technological capabilities of our region through strategic partnerships and a commitment to education," stated Abdul Subhani, President and CEO.

"Not only does our ongoing collaboration with A&M-Central Texas nurture new talent, but it also ensures we remain at the forefront of industry advancements and cybersecurity challenges."

Trideum Corporation was founded as a test and evaluation company in 2005, gaining a broad range of expertise in the design, development, integration, and sustainment of technical and software solutions, specializing in the areas of cybersecurity, design and engineering, modeling and simulation, test and evaluation, training and development, unmanned systems, and user experience.

Ron McNamara, Texas Operations Manager, said he was thrilled to renew the agreement with the university, pointing to the significant accomplishments that their presence on campus has successfully nurtured.

“Trideum’s close relationship with A&M-Central Texas is the perfect win-win-win,” he said, adding that when business, academic, and government entities collaborate, the benefits are incredible.

“When we partner with the university, we have access to cutting edge research conducted by and with the computer information science and cybersecurity faculty in the College of Business Administration,” he noted.

“We collaborate on projects in development with Operational Test Command and have equally close relationships with the military. We always knew that this would be productive, and everything we have accomplished in just a couple of short years proves that to be true.”

Both Centex Technologies and Trideum have strong track records of hiring A&M-Central Texas graduates from the Subhani Department of Computer Information Systems.

McNamara emphasized prioritizing a talent pipeline that identifies and offers internships to already trained students who become graduates and employees is of the upmost importance to Trideum and the community.

“We learn as much from them as they do from us,” he said. “The come to us extremely well-trained by the university and we look forward to the next two years of our partnership.”
