Amazon Web Services will partner with community colleges and technical schools throughout Texas to develop — and offer — an Associate of Applied Science degree in cloud computing. Texas Secretary of State Ruth Hughs made the announcement, noting that the goal of the partnership is to develop a workforce that will be ready for cloud computing job positions.
Beginning in spring 2020, the state’s community colleges and technical schools will offer the 60-hour credit program, which will be aligned with industry needs. The program will also help meet the goals of the 60X30 Texas Higher Education Plan, which aims to see at least 60% of Texas ages 25-34 receive a certificate or degree by 2030.
In addition, primary and secondary institutions will implement AWS Educate, Amazon’s initiative to support cloud learning with students or faculty, and to build computer and date-related skills for K-12 curriculum throughout the state.
