Steve Wozniak nicknamed “The Woz” known as a coding genius and co-founder of the tech giant Apple along with late Steve Jobs has launched his online technology-related education platform called “Woz U.” The platform will help people polish the skills that will ultimately lead them to a successful career in the growing tech industry.
According to a press release, “Our goal is to educate and train people in employable digital skills without putting them into years of debt,” Wozniak said. “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.”
For now, the platform will train software developers and computer support specialists; data science, cybersecurity, and mobile application programs will be introduced soon. Furthermore, Woz U will also provide school districts with K-12 STEAM programs, exposing digital engineering concepts to students at a younger age.

Based in the state of Arizona, Woz U also plans to launch ground campuses in 30 cities within the United States and around the world. Woz U has also launched an application that will help its students choose which technology-based career is best for them.
“My entire life I have worked to build, develop and create a better world through technology and I always have respected education,” Wozniak said. “Now is the time for Woz U, and we are only getting started.”
