Big Blue Partners with 200 universities globally.

By CBR Staff Writer

IBM is launching an Academic Initiative for Cloud, which will see the company develop a curriculum in partnership with 200 universities globally based on its Bluemix platform.

The company expects the new programme to reach over 20,000 students taking more than 250 courses in 36 countries.

Some of the institutions include the University of Cambridge, Imperial College of Science in England, National College of Ireland, University of Tokyo, Carnegie Mellon University, University of Southern California, and Ben-Gurion University in Israel.

They can use Bluemix in several courses from computer science, information technology, analytics and data science to mobile and entrepreneurship.

IBM said the open-standards-based Bluemix catalog includes more than 100 tools and services of the open-source technologies combined with IBM and third-party services like Watson, Internet of Things, Big Data & Analytics, and Mobile and others.

The Academic Initiative for Cloud offers the latest cloud technologies and solutions required for students to launch their own business in the future.

IBM is also launching a Student Developer Community, which is designed to offer cloud education and access to learning resources and information on how students can join Bluemix.
