With the rise of blockchain-based jobs, universities are beginning to teach blockchain courses to help students find job opportunities. Blockchain is a word that is very familiar to Bitcoin enthusiasts, becoming the most sought-after business in 2020. According to the latest LinkedIn blog post, blockchain technology is the most important work and skill this year. The blog also added that the low number of experienced people with this skill has caused high and high demand for them.
Unemployment in the United States has risen to 22 million due to the Coronavirus virus pandemic in the United States and the announcement of a red status by Donald Trump in the country, which in turn has increased the tendency to blockchain-based jobs. In turn, the teaching of blockchain courses in universities has become commonplace due to the increasing need for this skill. The results from the annual Quinnbies report show that 56% of the world's top 50 universities offer at least one blockchain course, which has increased by 42% since 2018. Professor Christie Utas, a professor of accounting at the University of Portland, told QuinnTellegraph that the increase in the need for experienced people in the field of blockchain technology is a result of the trend of traditional technology companies. He added:
Blockchain companies are rapidly innovating. Sharp and smart business executives who want to start a business want to take advantage of these innovations.
Blockchain courses help students find jobs
American universities such as Portland State, MIT, Stanford, University of California, Santa Barbara and many others are offering blockchain-based courses to students to meet this growing demand for the job, and students who take these courses are more likely to find it. They have jobs this year. Portland University, for example, recently added a blockchain course to its list of courses. Yuthas University is working with the NULS Foundation, an open source investment project in the blockchain industry, to teach students the basics of blockchain. So far, the university and the NULS Foundation have offered two full courses, including PSU design, for 21 interested students. An article from Yutah University states that the PSU blockchain program is intended for in-depth analysis of blockchain innovation innovations. The article also introduces courses offered to students in blockchain laboratories to gain experience in building efficient blockchain and conducting real and useful transactions. The first blockchain laboratory in business was launched in February this year, and provided students with a step-by-step guide on how to build a blockchain using the NULS chain, a blockchain that is evolving.
"Our commitment was to provide technology and technical expertise to students, and to teach them how to use blockchain from a user-customer perspective, developer and entrepreneur," blockchain maker NULS and PSU executive director Katie Norman told QuinnTellegraph. The second period of the PSU focused on the activities of blockchain developers and users. The course included guidelines for decentralized software for blockchain training software and training sessions on decentralized software and smart contract development. America Tirado, a student who has been fully trained in PSU courses, said:
Classes reduced my fears about blockchain, adding: "I've heard a lot about bitcoin and investing in it in the early 21st century, but I was skeptical because I didn't understand how it worked." During these courses, I learned about how this technology works and what it can do and how to use it.
"Join the NULS Foundation and help build our platform," Norman later told students who have completed the PSU blockchain course. He added:
All students are invited to our organization and we want to use their skills. We didn't officially invite PSU students this semester, but that's definitely the case now.
The University of California and Santa Barbara also offer blockchain courses. Both universities are members of the Blockchain Acceleration Organization (BAF), a private organization dedicated to accelerating blockchain education. Ciphertrace Analysis Company also works with BAF to train students in researching cryptocurrency scams. John Jeffries, Ciphertrace's director of finance, told QuinnTellegraph that the company will provide students with financial research software that has been approved and built to detect money laundering, and that laws will be enacted to provide research and the ability to monitor training regulations and then qualify. While Jeffries noted that educating students does not mean hiring them, BAF President Cameron Dennis told QuinnTellegraph that helping students to be trained in this work will be a great success for us this year. Dennis also explained that BAF blockchain courses are offered to both undergraduate and graduate students who want to expand their blockchain knowledge. Mr Dennis added:
A computer science professor and an economics professor agreed to present a blockchain seminar for spring 2019. We are also offering a blockchain computer science course at UCLA School of Engineering and are preparing to present a blockchain course at the University of California Davis in the fall of 2020.
Ben Fish, the developer of Findora, a blockchain-based company for financial software, has become known as Professor of Cryptography and holds a blockchain and cryptocurrency technology course at Stanford University. Fish told QuinnTellegraph that engineers taking part in the blockchain course will likely have a great chance of being accepted into large companies that lead blockchain technology. He added that businesses that want to start with the idea of blockchain will also need a technical team with detailed information on how blockchain works. Fish said the Stanford blockchain course provides a comprehensive look at blockchain technology and covers relevant topics. The intelligent students who complete this course will have a comprehensive knowledge of how blockchain and financial software work, and will even have sufficient knowledge to participate in blockchain research and innovation. We also give students an overview of how blockchain works in the world. Fish also said that finding a job in blockchain is enough, as is the undergraduate degree we offer at Stanford, which will increase the attractiveness of an engineering student and reduce the time it takes to hire managers.
