TZ APAC has announced a collaboration with the National University of Singapore’s School of Computing (NUS Computing) to create a Center of 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 curricula 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. Harvard University, MIT, Oxford University and other prominent Western universities offer similar programs.
According to Miles, the trend of launching Web3 and Blockchain curricula will become massive as more and more jobs emerge in the industry and educational institutions are required to train professionals to meet labor market demand.
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 be studying Blockchain and related technologies in one way or another.
Earlier, an associate 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.
