Learn More About the Blockchain Web3 Program

According to LinkedIn, Blockchain is the sixth most in-demand tech skill for the year 2024. Beyond the financial sector, which has been hiring blockchain, cryptocurrency and/or FinTech personnel for several years, many other industries are increasingly seeking talent with blockchain skills. From insurance to health care to supply chain, upwards of 55 unique industries are looking to hire technical and nontechnical blockchain talent. 

A blockchain is a distributed, cryptographically secure database structure that allows network participants to establish a trusted and immutable record of transactional data without the need for intermediaries. A blockchain can execute a variety of functions beyond transaction settlement, such as smart contracts. Anyone in the network can add data and it cannot be deleted or altered further. Usually, the blockchain stores the data in terms of blocks. Those blocks are linked together like a chain and encrypted for security. 

Web 3.0 is the next generation of internet technology that relies heavily on machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI). It aims to create open, connected and intelligent websites and web applications, which utilize a machine-based understanding of data. Using AI and advanced machine learning techniques, Web 3.0 provides more personalized and relevant information at a faster rate. In Web 3.0, an ocean of information is available to websites and applications, and they can understand and use that data in a way that is meaningful to individual users.

Content includes technical and business blockchain training for students, workers seeking career transition and professionals who want to upskill. The curriculum covers foundational knowledge, developer, project management, business and industry-specific blockchain and Web 3.0 training through on-demand, asynchronous courses and live, instructor-led workshops.
