Colin Miles, the newly-appointed CEO of TZ APAC, expects blockchain and Web3 curricula to be taught in classrooms in 3 to 5 years. This came after a new partnership with the National University of Singapore’s School of Computing which offers an in-depth blockchain curriculum.
“If you have a dedicated center in NUS, which runs blockchain courses every day of every week for students, it will become part of the fabric of one of the best computing schools in the world. I would imagine that most other schools would look to that as an example to follow.”cointelegraph
Colin Miles, TZ APAC’s CEO He also expected this trend to become a mainstay because a large number of exciting new jobs will come from the Web3 environment. It is, therefore, incumbent on educational institutions to help gear their student cohorts up for this important shift. Note that TZ APAC is the Asia-based blockchain adoption entity supporting the Tezos ecosystem. Tezos is an open-source proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchain launched in 2018 as a platform for smart contracts. As part of the newly announced partnership, TZ APAC has been tasked with creating a blockchain developer curriculum where students will be able to take part in classes, workshops, developer hackathons, and other practicals aimed at educating students about the Tezos blockchain.
