This fall, Miami Dade College joined an elite group of schools when it was selected by Amazon for their innovative AWS Educate program. With the dramatically increasing demand for cloud employees, AWS Educate provides an academic gateway for the next generation of IT and cloud professionals. The program is being offered at MDC, Carnegie Mellon, Cornell and the University of Washington.

AWS Educate is Amazon’s global initiative to provide students and educators with the resources needed to greatly accelerate cloud-related learning endeavors and to help power the entrepreneurs, workforce and researchers of tomorrow.

“Miami Dade College is the largest and most diverse institution of higher education in the U.S., offering an exceptional learning environment to our students. Our acclaimed School of Engineering and Technology is dedicated to advancing workforce education through innovative solutions and industry partnerships, and we are excited to have been chosen to integrate AWS Educate into our curricula this fall,” said Dr. Djuradj Babic, director of MDC’s School of Engineering and Technology. “AWS Educate is providing our students with in-depth, project-based learning opportunities and access to AWS’ cutting-edge technology, helping to give them a competitive advantage in obtaining fast-paced, high-paying jobs upon graduation.”
