Hortonworks proudly announces the launch of a new education program for Academic Institutions. This program was created to introduce students to the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) and to provide them with the necessary technical skills to complement their chosen academic curriculum.
Accredited colleges and universities around the world are invited to apply to become a Hortonworks Academic Partner, allowing them to incorporate our course materials into their classrooms at a low cost to students.
The Big Data skills gap is real.
Hortonworks provides our students with a strong foundation to work in the challenging field of analytics, says Richard Glass, co-director of the Advanced Applied Analytics Center at Bryant University. Bryant University is very excited about being able to partner with Hortonworks to bring leading edge big data technology to our more than 200 applied analytics majors.
By partnering with accredited colleges and universities, Hortonworks University is able to meet those needs. It’s a Win-Win situation.
Becoming an Academic Partner is easy!
To get started and learn more, a representative from your accredited college or university can visit our website at academic programs and complete the online application.
