Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak has just launched Woz U, a new digital institute designed for those eyeing a career in the tech industry. “Our goal is to educate and train people in employable digital skills without putting them into years of debt,” Wozniak said in a statement.
Woz U plans to build physical campuses in over 30 cities around the world. Other offerings from the institute include Woz U Education, which provides K-12 schools with STEAM programs, Woz U Enterprise that will help businesses recruit and retrain employees on new technologies and Woz U Accelerator — a 12 to 16 month program launching in 2019 aimed at identifying and developing elite talent. There’s also a mobile app that will help prospective Woz U students figure out which tech path best fits them.
