Hong Kong Polytechnic University launches its first educational program on Blockchain technology.
According to the university’s admissions announcement, this is the first Master’s degree program (MScBT) in Hong Kong, designed with a focus on the underlying technology of infrastructure, how to develop and secure blockchain-based dApps.
The program is suitable for those with little or no experience who want to learn and participate in the profession, or computer science graduates who want to improve their knowledge in the field of Blockchain as well as related industries. It is known that the tuition fee for this level is 300,000 HKD (38,537 USD) for both domestic and foreign scholars.

Blockchain learning programs are no longer too scarce, before ChromaWay partnered with Regent University to launch a Blockchain Programming course in Ghana. Or projects large and small that launch courses to educate users directly about their products such as the Web3 Foundation in partnership with edX that offers free courses on Polkadot, indirectly increasing blockchain coverage to more people.
