Head of IT, Dr Farhad Mehdipour, and Student Experience Coordinator, Anastasia Timoshkina, met Microsoft’s Higher Education Industry Executive, Dimitri Mardas, recently. They explored opportunities to collaborate to improve the experience of our OPAIC IT students.

Farhad says Microsoft technologies are very popular within New Zealand, particularly in the information technology sector. Different Microsoft tools, languages and platforms are used by professionals. Therefore, it is essential for students to learn the skills related to these technologies. 

In the meeting with Dimi, Farhad and Anastasia discussed the possibility of getting access to training resources particularly around cloud computing. This will provide students with the opportunity to learn more about a major cloud platform, which is currently the most popular one in New Zealand.
