The Cloud Software Development Graduate Certificate provides students of all backgrounds with the foundational skills needed to pursue a career in cloud computing. Through a four-course program that emphasizes hands-on, industry-facing experiential learning — via Khoury College of Computer Science’s partnerships with leading cloud platform companies like AWS, Google, and Microsoft and their suppliers — you’ll gain the technical ability, exposure, and experience to work on any cloud computing platform, as well as the career-building resources to put you on the fast track in this growing field. Scholarships are available, with a value of $12,500 over the life of the program. Priority will be given to students with higher financial need but all applicants are eligible to apply.
The cloud computing market has grown from $15B to over $210B in the past 10 years, with projections to double again by 2025. In fact, many IT decision makers believe the only obstacle to even more explosive growth in the field is a shortage of qualified talent to fill roles like software development engineer, product manager, solutions architect, support engineer, and system engineer.
