Corda Training/ Certification Programme

To provide COMP students with more hands-on experience in blockchain application development, COMP collaborated with the Hong Kong Blockchain Society to launch a Corda Training/ Certification Programme (TCP) starting from March 2018. Students who successfully completed the TCP could take part in Corda Developer Certification with the sponsorship from the Department on the examination fees.

 “The Corda workshop is very informative and insightful for us. We can learn some practical skills with Blockchain technology, for example, in the insurance and banking industry. The workshop enables us know more about what ‘Financial Technology’ is and I hope I can make good use of what I have learnt in this workshop in the future, “ said Ms Ching Ki Wong, Year 1 student of BSc (Hons) in Financial Technology (Top-up Degree programme).

This summer, six students from the same top-up degree programme undertook a 2-month internship at eMALI.IO, a Hong Kong based blockchain start-up where they could practically apply their knowledge on information security and distributed ledger technologies. They were responsible for performing blockchain research, implementing different cryptographic protocols and building up a decentralised credential system by using Hyperledger Fabric.
