Building the Internet of Tomorrow by Helping You Build Your Career

Your education is a serious time and financial commitment. Sometimes, seeing your studies’ practical applications and rewards in real-time, however, is challenging. In addition, due to networking technologies being rarely taught in accredited programs, students are left to find career-building opportunities on their own. That’s why NANOG founded NANOG U. 

Gain a Competitive Edge While Still in School

From DDoS attacks to mitigation and network optimization, NANOG U is a two-day in-person event that will provide local technology engineering students a competitive edge via talks and engagements with industry leaders. This allows students to connect and engage with industry innovators while learning about the latest Internet technologies, without ever having to leave their school.

Discover the Future of Networking

NANOG U's inspired + technical programming on the most current developments and challenges in network engineering, operations, and architecture is designed for both undergrad and graduate students and is presented by some of the top minds in the industry.
