Asian technology company TZ APAC has announced a partnership with the School of Computer Science at the National University of Singapore to give students the opportunity to study blockchain and Web3.
TZ APAC has announced a partnership with the National University of Singapore’s School of Computing (NUS Computing) to create a Center for Excellence in Computing. The new center, to be headed by NUS Computing professor Tan Sun Teck, will train industry experts in areas such as blockchain, data science and cloud computing.
TZ APAC’s newly appointed CEO Colin Miles said that in a few years blockchain and Web3 training programs will become an integral part of secondary and higher education. He said the center will offer blockchain courses to students every week and will become part of one of the most advanced IT schools in the world.
NUS now offers one of the most in-depth blockchain programs, targeting both novices and industry professionals — CEOs and mid-level managers. Similar programs are offered by Harvard University, MIT, Oxford University and other prominent Western universities.
According to Miles, the trend of launching Web3 and blockchain training programs will become massive as more and more jobs become available in the industry and educational institutions are required to train professionals to meet the demand of the job market.
The head of TZ APAC noted that Singapore is now leading the way in terms of institutionalizing education in cryptocurrency and Web3. In the near future, according to the expert, almost all students in the country will study blockchain and related technologies in one way or another.
Earlier, an assistant professor at Yale-NUS College (YNC) and a researcher at the Bitcoin Policy Institute (BPI) rebuked Singapore authorities for favoring institutional investors more than private ones.
