University of Windsor and BlackBerry team up on BlackBerry Bootcamp

Partnership to deliver a cybersecurity curriculum

The University of Windsor and BlackBerry have partnered to develop and deliver a cybersecurity curriculum for the University’s Graduate Master’s Program in Applied Computing.

The curriculum, called BlackBerry Bootcamp, will be taught as part of a required Network Security course, and completion of the curriculum will account for a portion of the student’s final grade.

BlackBerry Bootcamp will cover a range of cybersecurity topics including digital identity protection and privacy, software engineering, the latest techniques of cybercriminals, advanced threat detection technologies, and more.

“The University of Windsor is pleased to partner with BlackBerry to provide learning opportunities for our students,” said Rob Gordon, President at University of Windsor.

“This innovative remote learning collaboration will provide students a unique opportunity to develop crucial data science skills and expertise that will allow them to excel in an increasingly digital marketplace.”

It will be delivered over 10 weeks starting on May 18, as a remote learning program to ensure students can continue their education during the COVID-19 health crisis.

“We are delighted to partner with the University of Windsor on student education and enable them to have a successful STEM career,” said Neelam Sandhu, Vice President of Business Operations & Strategic Accounts, Office of the CEO at BlackBerry.

“Now more than ever partnerships such as this are critical to ensure students can continue to learn remotely and prepare them to pursue careers in high-demand fields such as Data Science.”
