About Our Blockchain Technology Course

Blockchain technology has been revolutionizing every industry and managerial function. It has the potential to change business processes and models in a distributed and decentralized manner. Blockchain has been redefining the ways we do businesses, exchange ideas, and manage workflows.

Currently, there has been a significant rise in demand for blockchain developers in the market. Glassdoor reported a 300% increase in blockchain-related jobs in 2019 over the last year.

However, there has also been a lack of technical skills and talent in blockchain development. Hence, there is a desperate need for a hands-on educational program to potentially address this talent gap in the market.

The Blockchain Technology course will introduce students to the concepts, tools, and development of blockchain technology. The program not only provides learners with an understanding and practical knowledge of blockchain fundamentals but also an essential skill set for designing and developing smart contracts and methods for developing decentralized applications on the blockchain.

The program will further provide an in-depth exploration of a wide range of other concepts including cryptocurrency, FinTech, blockchain platforms and frameworks, and secure peer-to-peer transactions.

Students will be engaged in experiential learning activities that will enable them potentially to address real-world issues in blockchain development.

Through the lab-oriented courses and practical assignments, students will develop essential skills and competence required for a career in blockchain development.

The completion of the in-class courses is followed by a six-week full-time practicum to gain real-world hands-on experience in blockchain development. This will further allow students to demonstrate their talent in resolving real-world challenges leading to a rise in career potential.

5 Stars

Personally my studies at Focus College had taught me to always think independently and use knowledge I’ve gained in my future professional career. 

I had a great time at the course and it was very helpful and fun as well.

I am thankful for the faculty that helped me gain that knowledge and has brought a new dimension into my life.
