TechU Built for you

University Day at TechU
For students and educators

IBM works with students, professors and businesses around the world to ensure that the next generation of experts will be ready to leverage the superior security, availability, scalability, and efficiency of IBM Systems and products.

The University Day at IBM TechU in Atlanta is an opportunity to bring together local and regional academic communities with IBM researchers and developers. Tuesday's agenda consists of a main hall presentation, a Master of the Mainframe contest, a trip to the solution center to learn and network with IBM’s A-team of experts combined with lectures and panel sessions with a focus on IBM Z, Power Systems and Storage.

Master the Mainframe is a code challenge contest that helps students learn on-demand mainframe skills. A badge is given to all student that complete the contest.
