Apple co-founder Woz launches uni for affordable tech education

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has opened an online university called Woz U to make it more affordable for students to gain a technology degree.

The Arizona branch is online now but Wozniak hopes to have physical campuses in more than 30 cities worldwide.

Right now Woz U offers software development and training to be a computer support specialist. Programmes to train people in data science, mobile applications and cyber security are coming soon.

“Our goal is to educate and train people in employable digital skills without putting them into years of debt,” said Wozniak, who invented the Apple II computer that launched the personal computing revolution.

“People often are afraid to choose a technology-based career because they think they can’t do it. I know they can, and I want to show them how.”

Woz U has a mobile app that will help match people with the technology-based career best suited for them.

“My entire life I have worked to build, develop and create a better world through technology and I have always respected education,” said Wozniak. “Now is the time for Woz U, and we are only getting started.”
