Despite the massive amount of people attending, you have to be credentialed to get in, something that does not happen for many college professors, and for even fewer college students.
Yet the UT College of Business and Innovation was represented at the show by Dr. Seth Powless, Department of Information Operations & Technology Management, and Tim Moore, a COBI freshman.
"It was interesting to see ways to incorporate different ideas and talking business with other companies, both from the marketing and IS sides" Moore said.
He added that "the coolest thing I saw at CES was a BMW that could drive itself."
Moore and Powless both said attending CES enables them to share information and ideas with COBI IOTM students who plan on making their careers within technology and business.
"Furthermore," Powless said, "now that we have attended, we will be able to go back to CES next year, in hopes of partnering with some companies. That could be a huge opportunity for the 'College of Innovation.' "
