The initiative aims to build capacity for existing master’s and PhD students in this area and help contribute to scaling Canada’s blockchain industry while also tackling some of the world’s most complex socio-technical issues. As the world’s most multidisciplinary blockchain training path, the unique initiative will provide students with next-generation tools and applications to address issues in FinTech, engineering and computer science, and information governance through its disciplinary streams.
