UA and Diebold partner in innovative cloud-computing program


University of Akron students and Diebold engineers are teaming up to explore the uncharted virtual world of cloud computing.  

Students from The University of Akron and software engineers from Canton-based Diebold, Incorporated (NYSE:DBD), makers of automated teller machines and security systems, will take a series of three courses in cloud computing at UA to learn how industry can maximize cyberspace resources. Simultaneously, a group of budding computer scientists will receive specialized training to help industry — right out of college.

"This partnership will help fill identified workforce needs and contribute to innovative technological advances. The interactions our students will have with Diebold engineers, both in the classroom and through co-ops and dedicated projects, will help create for them an outstanding academic experience — a true Akron Experience," said Provost William M. “Mike" Sherman.
