In the fall semester of 2012, IBM is running its eighth annual Master the Mainframe Contest for college, university, and high school students across the U.S. and Canada (excluding Quebec).
Are your students ready to Master the Mainframe?
If students at your school want to compete in the IBM Master the Mainframe Contest, we ask that you join the IBM Academic Initiative so that we can verify students' eligibility. The entire process takes only about 10 minutes. There is no charge to join, and there are many benefits to becoming a member:
- Free access to IBM software, courseware, and online training
- Discounts on conferences, IBM certifications, classroom training, and more
- Access to a mainframe system for you and your students at no charge
Ready to join?
- Go to the IBM Academic Initiative membership page and follow the instructions there.
- When asked to specify the IBM technology that you currently use or plan to teach in your courses or research, select System z software and/or hardware.
After you join, your students can use your name as their sponsoring professor when they register for an IBM mainframe contest.
