Canadian University Offers Graduate Training in Blockchain Tech

The University of British Columbia offers a so-called training path in blockchain and DLT tech, focusing on public benefit blockchain solutions.

Canadian-based University of British Columbia (UBC) has announced a blockchain and distributed ledger technology training program for master’s and PhD students. UBC announced the development in a press release on June 11.

The training path is reportedly designed to build competency around blockchain tech, and is focused on its application in four public benefit areas: health and wellness, clean energy, regulatory technology and Indigenous issues.

UBC says they hope to train 139 students over a six-year period, and graduates should have the tools to evaluate blockchain solutions as well as identify opportunities for blockchain implementation.

Canadian national non-profit research organization Mitacs and 15 industry partners will provide CA$2.44 million for 156 internships and post-doctoral training projects.

As previously reported by Cointelegraph, students at UBC’s Vancouver campus founded a bitcoin (BTC) club in 2014. At press time, the club’s website stated that its goal was “ … to provide an environment where bitcoin-related ideas, projects, programs, events, and businesses can be studied and grown.”

The club reportedly focused on education and engagement, bitcoin payment options for on-campus merchants, obtaining mentorship from industry professionals, and providing incubation for bitcoin businesses on campus.

At the end of May, Dublin City University partnered with tech company network Technology Ireland ICT Skillnet to launch a master’s program in blockchain technology, purportedly the first of its kind in Ireland.
