AKIPRESS.COM - The University of Central Asia (UCA) said it has joined the UiPath Academic Alliance programme, offering its students and staff training in Robotic Process Automation (RPA), a key technology recognised by top analysts for its potential to empower the next generation of workers with the skills of the future. This partnership will enable members of the UCA community to access the contents of the basic RPA courses, developed by UiPath, and gain RPA literacy and skills over the next three years.
UiPath launched the Academic Alliance in May 2019 as a framework for working with leading institutions, universities, and colleges to craft the global RPA knowledge ecosystem, and help graduates to fulfill the needs on the future job market through an inclusive community of educators. Through the programme, UiPath aims to train more than one million students, and partner with one thousand accredited institutions of higher learning globally over the next two years.
Built around the initiative to offer ‘a Robot for Every Student,’ the programme affords the ability to introduce RPA to the entire university, college or campus, whether the student is majoring in technology, business or any other field. The students can create their own software “assistants” to help them to prepare for classes, do faster and better research, search for financial aid or jobs, or even innovate a new process or solution to support non-profit work for the betterment of society.
