Graduate Cloud Certificate

The Graduate Certificate in Cloud Computing is a 4 course, 12-semester-credit-hour program designed to equip technical professionals with the knowledge and technical skills necessary for a career in an organization that leverages cloud computing. The wide-range of use of cloud computing in today’s business, government and academic environments requires a broad range of competencies and understanding of how cloud computing influences a particular area.

This certificate is designed to give a common framework of understanding cloud computing, as well as allow for specialization in three specific tracks: cyber-security, cloud-infrastructure, and applications in cloud.
