Canada’s York University School of Continuing Studies has announced two new university-level continuing blockchain programs:
- The part-time Certificate in Blockchain Development
- The full-time Post-Graduate Certificate in Back-End and Blockchain Development
On May 29, it has been reported that the university said its new courses aim to meet the rising demand for blockchain developer roles in Canada, especially in the Greater Toronto Area, where it has risen by 374% in the last two years.
However, the two courses, which are scheduled to start this September, will help students to upskill and build a portfolio in the blockchain field so that they can secure roles as blockchain professionals.
It has been analyzed that the university will offer the part-time blockchain development course completely online, as the post-graduate certification course will start online, and then depending on public health guidelines will continue on-campus.
Likewise, while the enrollment for the course is open, the university has not specified the duration of the courses or the number of students it will be taking on.
An advisory council member of the post-graduate program said that technologies like blockchain are crucial in building a more transparent and high-performance data governance system, which can mitigate crises like the current COVID-19 pandemic.
Thus, the report said that the university highlighted the ongoing pandemic has only added to the demand for blockchain use-cases and blockchain jobs.
