As companies advance to build Cloud based infrastructures and Cloud Native solutions that enable emerging technology area such as Artificial Intelligence, IoT and Data Analytics, there is a need for Cloud Solution Architects with skillsets for cloud architecting and building intelligent digital solutions. Cloud Solution Architects need to optimize their use of the Cloud by understanding cloud based services and how the services fit into the Cloud solutions. They also need to understand the emerging digital technologies used in modern-day industries, to design, implement and manage new digital solutions for Industry 4.0 applications. To prepare Cloud Solution Architects with knowledge on cloud architecting and building intelligent digital solutions, the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering is pleased to introduce our Specialist Diploma in Cloud Computing (Architecture). This course is a one-year, two-semester, part-time, stackable course.
This programme aims to develop learners with the competency required to build Cloud based infrastructures and Cloud Native solutions that enable emerging technology area such as Artificial Intelligence, IoT and Data Analytics to perform end to end digital transformation, from conception to delivery. Graduates from this programme will be able to:
• architect and deploy secure and robust applications on Cloud technologies;
• define a Cloud solution using architectural design principles based on customer requirements; and
• offer implementation guidance to the organization throughout the life cycle of the project.
