Alcatel-Lucent to offer training in NBN skills at UTS


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.

The move follows approval of Alcatel-Lucent University's learning modules by UTS's academic board for inclusion in the Masters of Engineering Studies in Telecommunication Networks and in Telecommunication Engineering and Telecommunication Networks, and the announcement last July of plans by Alcatel-Lucent to open a campus of the Alcatel-Lucent University within UTS in August 2010.

According to Alcatel-Lucent, "The curriculum content, purpose-built laboratory and industry certification program will strengthen postgraduate courses for students who aspire to work with the most advanced carrier-grade IP networks, including Australia's NBN'¦Unlike other Masters of Engineering degrees, the partnership between Alcatel-Lucent and UTS provides students with the powerful combination of a tertiary degree with practical industry-level skills and certification'¦

"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.

The Alcatel-Lucent University at UTS is the first facility of its kind in Australia. The first class will commence in February 2012. An information session on the courses will be held at UTS on 28 September at 6.00 pm.
