Following up on my last post on shortage of mainframe professional, I researched on the list of university that currently offers mainframe courses. I believe this is crucial step in building young generation of mainframe professionals. Below link has full list of universities that offer mainframe courses:
Here is the list form Illinois:
Contact: Raffaella Settimi
Contact: Vicki Hampton
Contact: Trudee Bremer
Contact: Chu Jong
Contact: Norm Noerper
I think the list includes both undergraduate and graduate level programs.
I graduated from Northern Illinois university(NIU) back in 2005.
Check here for the list of professors at NIU http://www.cs.niu.edu/faculty/index.shtml
It is good to see schools are offering mainframes courses. I hope we continue to see we will have study stream of professors teaching mainframes.
