Dell EMC has hosted its first IoT and digital transformation bootcamp at the United Arab Emirates University (UAEU) in Al Ain, UAE. This two-day bootcamp focused on Internet of Things (IoT) implementations and aspects of digital transformation and applications architecture to pave the way to develop skills needed for future data scientists.
Themed ‘Where IoT, big data and cloud native applications meet’, the bootcamp was chaired by Dr. Leila Ismail, Associate Professor at the College of Information Technology, UAEU.
The advanced curriculum that connects the dots towards experiencing digital transformation, was delivered to 20 students from the College of IT at the UAEU. From offering a deep dive into IoT and building connected cars to exploring third platform technologies, this state-of-the-art workshop was an ideal platform to understand how innovative technologies work in a real-life end-to-end solution through hands-on labs and discussions.
By developing structured education journeys and certifications like the digital transformation bootcamp, Dell EMC enables students to link academic knowledge to industrial implementation of evolving technologies such as IoT, big data analytics and cloud computing.
Following this comprehensive bootcamp, Dell EMC will offer two-months mentoring sessions for the selected trainees to add greater value through continuous skills development.
Prof. Ghaleb Al Hadrami, Deputy Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs (Provost), UAEU, said: “DELL EMC has been a UAEU strategic partner for years and this new collaboration initiative with them to serve our students is an example of their commitment to us. In achieving the UAEU mission, we are keen to provide our students with the skills needed for the job market especially those related to emerging technologies like IoT and big data analytics.”
