Temasek Polytechnic and Cloudera in data science pact
#TEMASEKPolytechnic and #Cloudera said they would work together to cultivate the next generation of data professionals through the Cloudera Academic Partnership (CAP) programme. Through this programme, students from Temasek Polytechnic’s School of Informatics & IT (IIT) have access to the latest Apache Hadoop curriculum, software and skills training, Cloudera said in a statement. Temasek Polytechnic has integrated the content provided by Cloudera into both its full-time Diploma in Big Data Management & Governance and the part-time Specialist Diploma in Big Data Management courses. Available to post-secondary students, Temasek Polytechnic’s full-time programme is the first and only full-time programme dedicated to big data skills, Cloudera said. The part-time programme also caters to working professionals who are seeking to upskill in this area, it added. “Temasek Polytechnic is committed to training students with deep skills in managing big data,” said Temasek Polytechnic deputy principal and IIT director Lee-Lim Sok Keow. “Our partnership with Cloudera in implementing the CAP programme is already helping our students acquire the necessary skills and experience to respond to the needs of industry for skilled professionals,” she added. Through CAP, Cloudera provides partner institutions with a free, complete, industry-standard Hadoop curriculum that can readily be incorporated into computer science and business analytics courses, the company said. Teaching staff and students of affiliated institutions also get access to software and discounted training to help accelerate the adoption of the Hadoop platform. Currently, over 100 academic institutions around the globe are members of CAP, it added.
