Representative from Amazon shared that “Placing customer at the centric and working backward, we realized that, as more and more companies move their operations to the cloud, it’s becoming increasingly important for students to have a solid understanding of cloud computing. By learning about the cloud can open up new opportunities for students to create innovative projects and collaborate on new ideas with their peers. By enabling cloud skills at universities, students will have a competitive advantage when entering the workforce and will be better equipped to tackle the challenges of our increasingly digital world. We are so proud to be a part of the Posts and Telecommunications Institute of Technology student’s journey, and strongly believe that, the new era of digital workforce has been started from here!” (Mr. Toan Do).
