Canada’s University of British Columbia Introduces Blockchain Technology Program

Canada's UBC Blockchain Technology Course
University Of British Columbia Rolls Out Blockchain Technology Training

Canadian-based University of British Columbia (UBC), has joined the growing list of tertiary institutions offering Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) courses.

According to a press release by [email protected], the blockchain and DLT training program is a first in Canada, and will be open to Masters and Phd students. The program aims to train students on building competency around blockchain technology; with a special focus on its application across four key sectors: health and wellness, clean energy, regulatory technology and indigenous issues.

A snippet from the UBC notice titled “Blockchain to Improve the World” reads:

The initiative will allow students to develop the skills around emerging technologies that are in demand as well as drive economic growth as graduates fill the void in the industry.

The institution also expresses interest to promote research, education and advancement in the design, development and adoption of blockchain technology.

Funding for the post-doctoral training and internship projects will be provided by Canadian research organization – Mitacs in partnership with 15 other institutions; to the sum of CA$2.44 million.

The university states they hope to train about 139 students over a six-year period.

UBC is a top-tier institution, famous for its Bitcoin (BTC) club formed in 2014 by students of its Vancouver campus.  The Bitcoin club’s website stated its goal was to provide an environment where bitcoin-related ideas, projects, events and businesses can be studied and grown.

Other global universities who recently announced courses in blockchain and cryptocurrency include: Dublin City University (Ireland), Wharton School of Pennsylvania University (USA), among others.
