Canadian-based University of British Columbia has announced a Blockchain and DLT training program for master’s and PhD students

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.
