    Linux the focus of new Australian Masters degree

    Charles Sturt University (CSU) has partnered with Linux vendor Novell to offer a two-year postgraduate Masters degree which includes formal Linux certification. Novell said in a statement the course would be the only postgraduate-level qualification which would include the achievement of Novell Certified Linux Engineer (Novell CLE) status as a key requirement. "Students will study for their Masters degree via a mixture of distance education coupled with hands-on practical training courses with Novell's leading IT training provider Excom Education," Novell added.

      More and more academic institutions are now incorporating vendor software specialisms into their courses, meaning that academic qualifications can now show potential employers that people know their way around the software that they use, rather than just the concepts behind it.

      I know from personal experience that the two work really well together. Infact if were it not for the MS and Cisco elements included in what I'm doing there would only be half a course!

      That sounds sweet. I have done some training with Excom and they are pretty cool. It seems they are the top one over here in Australia. Getting on this would be awesome but 2 years is a bit of a long haul for me.
