Course: KPMG TechAcademy
Our TechAcademy is a unique opportunity to work with the newest technologies and the brightest minds to develop your technological skill set.
Empower your future career by leveraging new technologies.
The programme provides a playground for students who are passionate about new technologies and want to solve real-life problems using feasible tech solutions. It is a place where tech and creativity merge into a beautiful symbiosis. You will learn from field experts and connect with like-minded, tech-savvy students and professionals. The cross-disciplinary setting allows for creative collaboration, which we believe creates the best and most innovative ideas.
TechAcademy is not solely focused on the great things that these technologies can be used for but also emphasises how to tackle ethical issues arising when working with the technologies and data. We will discuss the ethical and social challenges that arise as we become increasingly entangled with technology.
The academy spans over four evenings at our premises spread across a school year. Each evening will have its own disciplinary focus that revolves around new technology. Participation in all sessions is a requirement and the programme dates are as follows:
- Friday, 8 October 2021
- Wednesday, 17 November 2021
- Thursday, 10 February 2022
- Friday, 22 April 2022
As new technologies constantly emerge, the programme may change – what is relevant today may not be relevant one year from now. We always want to be at the forefront of the latest technologies.
The ideal candidate is currently enrolled in a study programme (bachelor or masters). It is not a requirement nor a necessity that the studies are tech focused. All we demand is that you are eager to learn and possess a sincere curiosity and passion for tech. Skills can be taught, whereas passion cannot.
The Academy is hosted by NewTech and is free of charge. By joining TechAcademy you will also become part of the TechAcademy Alumni network where you will be able to meet former TechAcademy participants and meet professionals within the industry.
