Red Hat Academy partners #SMU to produce more #Linux professionals
Red Hat has plans to expand the Red Hat Academy (RHA) programme to include the Singapore Management University (SMU) and its School of Information Systems (SIS). This is done through collaboration with SMU in order to provide students with state-of-the-art academic Linux curriculum designed for hands-on, performance-based instruction and assessments. As a result, these perks allow SMU students to achieve professional Linux certification at a discounted rate. This is important as it allows more students to transform into Linux professionals thus opening doors of opportunities in IT job market. Not only that, Red Hat involves various RHA partners in activities such as open source workshops, seminars and competitions. Red Hat Challenge, a knowledge-based competition , is aimed at tertiary students across the region including China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore and Taiwan.
