AWS Educate Members Now Receive Exclusive Access to Content on Udacity’s Nanodegree Program on Machine Learning

AWS Educate is committed to providing students and educators with resources needed to accelerate cloud learning, which is why we have collaborated with Udacity – an online education provider for lifelong learners – to bring our members access to skills, knowledge, and practice for today’s machine learning technology.

Beginning on May 18th, AWS Educate members will receive an exclusive benefit of $200 worth of free content on their Machine Learning Engineer Nanodegree Program. With Udacity, AWS Educate members can master valuable machine learning skills and use their AWS Promotional Credits to gain hands-on experience with cutting-edge AWS Machine Learning technologies like Amazon SageMaker.

Other ways we work with Udacity include:

Learners enrolled in Udacity’s Machine Learning Engineer Nanodegree Program will receive additional benefits when they sign up for AWS Educate, including $100 in AWS Promotional Credits to get started, and an additional $100 in AWS Promotional Credits upon completion of the Nanodegree Program.

AWS will provide machine learning resources, such as sample notebooks and public datasets to help students apply their knowledge.

“Collaboration with industry leaders is critical to our approach to teaching at Udacity. We want to empower our students with the best tools on the most widely applicable technology platforms for machine learning. This is why we are so excited to expand our collaboration with AWS. Through making their tools and platforms accessible to our students, we help ensure they develop the valuable competencies they need to advance in their careers,” said Christian Plagemann, VP of Learning Products at Udacity.

Whether you are a student, data scientist, ML researcher, or developer, AWS offers machine learning services and tools, such as Amazon SageMaker. Amazon SageMaker is a fully-managed platform that enables developers and data scientists to quickly and easily build, train, and deploy machine learning models at any scale.

“We’re excited to work with Udacity and further our efforts to put machine learning tools in to the hands of students, developers, and data scientists at all levels,” said Dr. Matt Wood, general manager of deep learning and artificial intelligence for AWS. “This new relationship with Udacity will help students and developers get the in-demand skills they need for the rapidly growing career opportunities in machine learning. We can’t wait to see what students and AWS Educate members do with this new access to AWS’s innovative machine learning technology like Amazon SageMaker.”

Students taking the Machine Learning Engineer Nanodegree will be enrolled into AWS Educate. AWS Educate provides students around the world with tools to gain cloud computing skills and pursue their dreams of a technology career. Content, knowledge checks, badges, and AWS Promotional Credits help learners explore Cloud Career Pathways and access the AWS Educate Job Board which houses jobs and internships from Amazon and partner technology companies.
