AMSA has been awarded a MathWorks community grant in support of the school’s curriculum.
MathWorks, a leading developer of mathematical computing software, actively invests in local communities through its community grant program. The company supports organizations that benefit our local communities, especially those that inspire learning and promote education where the company and its employees work and live.
AMSA’s computer science department will use the grant money to enable its Cybersecurity students to take certificate license exams after completing their classes. The grant money also covers access to virtual labs, which will be helpful in effectively teaching Networks and Cybersecurity concepts in a simple and easy way that meets student needs.
“This grant will help AMSA students gain the latest technological skills to move ahead in their college and career paths,” said Padmaja Bandaru, chair of AMSA’s computer science department.
“Certifications are intended to demonstrate to employers that individuals possess necessary knowledge and skills. Obtaining Cyber Security or Network certification will set our students apart and increase their chances of landing internships because these certifications are a legitimate assessment of real-world skill sets. We are grateful to MathWorks for making this possible for our students,” said Bandaru.
