The educational sector is known for being slow in adopting new technologies. Most often they take their time to study the technology, form committees, redesign the programs and by then the technology is already getting out of vogue. However, with the blockchain technology, while some institutions are sceptical about integrating the blockchain technology into their educational system, some other institutions are taking the bull by the horn. Here’s a list of top universities that have established themselves as an authority in the blockchain technology with courses, programs and certification.
