Cisco signs-on with La Trobe U

LT U will join Cisco’s IT innovation network with a research programme, including a co-funded chair in the Internet of Things

It’s Cisco’s second Melbourne partnership in four week – last month it announced a cyber-security training centre at Victoria U.

And last week Cisco signed an MOU with TAFE Directors Australia, to focus on digital skills and cybersecurity.”

It also works with Flinders U on a cyber-security degree, has an IoT censor-based energy conservation research project at UTS, is a member of the Edith Cowan U based Cooperative Research Centre for Cyber Security and has supported a Curtin U MOOC series on IoT.

And then there are the Cisco Learning Academy Partners; (deep breath) UniSA, Flinders U, Charles Darwin U, Federation U, Charles Darwin U, Victoria U, La Trobe U, RMIT, Swinburne U, Deakin U, Curtin U, Murdoch U, Uni Southern Queensland, Western Sydney U, UTS, Uni Newcastle, Uni Queensland, QUT, Uni Sunshine Coast, UNSW, Griffith U and U Tas – plus a swag of school and colleges.

As a way of ensuring the next generation of network practitioners and researchers are friendly to and familiar with Cisco and its works this is all very hard to beat.
