AWS Educate

As cloud computing continues to grow in popularity, the need for employees with knowledge and skills in cloud computing has also grown. In response to this growing need, Amazon Web Services (AWS) started an initiative called AWS Educate to provide students and educators with the training and resources needed for cloud-related learning.

As a member of AWS Educate, the University of Texas at Dallas proudly provides its educators and students with twice as many AWS credits, demos, and special on-campus programs. Professors, teaching assistants, and educators receive access to AWS technology, open source content for their courses, training resources, and a large support community. Students receive credits for hands-on experience with AWS technology, training, content, career pathways, and the AWS Educate Job Board. A full list of benefits is below:
