CUD Signs Partnership Agreement with Red Hat Academy

March 9, 2020: Canadian University Dubai and Red Hat Academy have signed an agreement to bring Red Hat Academy courses to the university students.

Red Hat is the world’s leading provider of open source software solutions, using a community-powered approach to reliable and high-performing cloud, Linux, middleware, storage and virtual technologies. Different than closed source software, open source allows users to use, change, and distribute the software to anyone and for any purpose.

“We have noticed that there is a significant shift in the industry towards open source. Through this agreement, our students will be able to set up their own open source skills with the help of Red Hat technology offered in their programs, thus opening doors to exciting careers in the IT industry,” said Dr. Adel Ben Mnaouer, Professor in the Department of Computer Engineering and Computational Sciences.

As Red Hat Academy courses are tailored towards job definition and not on teaching general topics, they are designed to successfully prepare students to succeed on the Red Hat certification exams and help them to prove their skills and build their careers.

The collaboration was initiated by Dr. Adel Ben Mnaouer. The partnership agreement was signed by Dr. Sherif Moussa, Dean of Faculty of Engineering, Applied Science and Technology, CUD, and Adrian M. Pickering, Regional General Manager, Red Hat MENA.

More information on the program, FAQs and the curriculum is available on the Red Hat Academy website.
