Greetings, my name is Carlos Ortiz and I enjoy
the Florida west coast where I live with my wife and family. Here we
enjoy the beaches, warmer weather and the diverse outdoors. I am also a
Computer Science professor at Hillsborough Community College at the South Shore campus where I enjoy teaching technology courses to our students since 2009.
Since moving to Florida in 1977, I had the distinct opportunity to join
commercial, government and military organizations where I have used my
skills in technology and learned others as well. I have experience in
electronics manufacturing where I worked in hardware design, software
design, and test engineer. During my work in Information Technology I
performed the duties of system administrator and Information Systems
Security Officer for a defense contractor.
While living in Florida I completed my undergraduate studies at UCF
where I earned a BS in Engineering Technology and graduate studies at
Nova Southeastern University earning a MS in Management Information
In 1995, I started working in corporate technical training, and in 1999 I
began teaching at universities and colleges, I have developed and
delivered training courses for LAN, WAN, Operating Systems,
Applications, Network Management Systems and telephony technologies.
Some of these courses have been also delivered online and in shorter
corporate training sessions (one week) where I have been able to
interact directly with students worldwide. Over this period I had the
opportunity to teach some of these technical courses in Spanish on
locations in Brazil, Mexico, and the United States
As a college professor I have developed and delivered graduate level
courses in Information Technology and undergraduate courses such as Open
Systems I - TCP/IP, Linux, LAN troubleshooting, Introduction to Unix,
Windows Server, Assembly Language programming (Intel), MS Office, MS
Publisher and MS Frontpage among others.
Some of the industry certifications I have earned which have allowed me to teach additional technical courses include: CompTIA Linux +, Cisco CCNA, Cisco 7600, Cisco Advanced MPLS VPNs, and Cisco AON.
I look forward to a great semester and to working with you in class.
Enjoy your time at Hillsborough Community College and do well in your studies.
