IEEE-CS Certification and Professional Education Program Joins the Teradata University Network

December 9, 2014 | LOS ALAMITOS, Calif.

Educational collaboration will increase skill levels and career readiness

IEEE Computer Society has joined the Teradata University Network as a partner in the online international community whose members share learning materials, knowledge, ideas, experiences, and job opportunities in the broad field of analytics. This educational collaboration will help IEEE-CS student and academic members deepen their information systems, management, or computer science skills and team with Teradata University Network partner companies looking for employees with those skills.

All students and faculty members can register for free access to the Teradata University Network learning portal, which includes hundreds of e-learning resources on integrated data warehousing, big data analytics, and business applications; software packages from Teradata and other partners; and web-based training for popular Teradata certifications.
"As a premier supporter and leader in computer science higher education, bringing IEEE-CS into our global network is a milestone in our efforts to close the skills gap and ensure that new graduates are job-ready," said Susan Baxley, Director of Teradata University Network, Teradata.
"The IEEE-CS is very pleased to work with Teradata in offering this valuable learning opportunity," said John Keppler, Senior Manager, IEEE-CS Certification and Professional Education. "We’re glad to be able to bring awareness of these educational resources to our student and faculty members."
As noted across many media outlets in the last two years, there is a shortage of qualified job candidates for positions working with big data. The Teradata University Network, in conjunction with Teradata (NYSE: TDC), has helped bridge the divide between academia and the professional world by providing a portal where MIS, marketing, and computer science faculty can develop, collaborate, and share educational resources. Academic programs supported by the Teradata University Network produce graduates fully prepared to enter the world of big data and analytics. The learning portal also provides free access to students in these fields to give them real-world experience with the latest tools and exposure to common business challenges.
