To fuel the pipeline of technologists entering the workforce, the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT), one of Canada’s largest post-secondary polytechnics, is constantly looking for ways to bring innovative technology to their students. Whether it is equipping students with cloud computing resources through AWS Educate or partnering with technology companies to understand the skills necessary to succeed post-graduation, BCIT is an example of the importance of industry and education working together to meet the increasing demand for cloud employees. Students are using their AWS Educate credits for compute resources used in labs, including Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), and Amazon Route 53. These exercises move from theory into practice, helping students get the skills they need to secure a job after graduation.
