"Thanks to the amazing instructors in the academy and the overall online and self-study experience, and especially the hands-on approach that we had, I began to have interest in learning again. Cisco Networking Academy led me to a new, completely unrelated field of work which I did not anticipate when applying to Computer Engineering. It is cliche to say this but if it weren't for the Cisco Networking Academy, I do not know where I would be at this point in my life."

Lucie d’Alguerre, Student, University of Lorraine, France

As cities build sensors and data systems into infrastructure, a team of innovative Cisco Networking Academy students realized that a blind person’s white stick could become a smart stick. With mentoring and support from Cisco, they developed a prototype device to transform the urban experience for people without sight.
