The University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) is to launch technical facilities and a training program provided by Alcatel-Lucent at its Blackfriars campus starting in the first semester 2012.

"Up to 100 UTS students per year will have access to Alcatel-Lucent's facilities, infrastructure and training services. Training will focus on technologies that will form a fundamental part of a broadband-enabled Australia including voice over IP, video over IP, access IP technology, passive optical networks (PON) and others."

Alcatel-Lucent Australia CEO Andrew Butterworth, said: "Students of Alcatel-Lucent courses at UTS will become the skilled workers our customers need as they develop and deliver the next generation of broadband services."

According to Alcatel-Lucent says it is UTS' first significant telecommunications partner to contribute to the academic engineering curriculum, and UTS is the first university in the world to offer the Alcatel-Lucent 'Networking Routing Specialist II' industry certification.
 
Alcatel-Lucent University, the company's organisation for learning and professional development, invests in tertiary education worldwide. According to the company, it has 18 training centres and delivers almost three million student hours per year.
