IIIT Hyderabad in association with TalentSprint has announced the launch of an Advanced Certificate Program on Blockchain Technologies and Solutions. This follows their earlier executive education program on Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, which has had over 800 participants within six months of its launch.
Gartner has identified Blockchain as one of the top disruptive technologies of 2018. World Economic Forum survey suggests that 10 per cent of global GDP will be stored on Blockchain by 2027. According to an industry study, there is a 700% increase in demand for Blockchain professionals globally. NASSCOM estimates that Blockchain has the potential to create the value of up to USD 5 Billion in India in the next 5 years. Even central policy-making organizations such as NITI Aayog have identified Blockchain as a key enabler of national infrastructure.
This Advanced Certificate Program will enable a deeper understanding of Blockchain technologies and how to leverage the same for building complex solutions for distributed multi-entity applications, integrated financial systems, supply chain and other industry applications. The three-month program will be delivered by faculty from the Blockchain Research CoE and practitioners from TalentSprint, with extensive hands-on assignments and a capstone project.
