The interdisciplinary Cloud and Network Infrastructures (CNI) programme at EIT Digital Master School is designed to give you a comprehensive overview of network and cloud computing.

When our networks became overwhelmed with connected devices and streaming services, cloud computing saved the day. Now, the so-called ‘cloudification’ of networks is set to unleash a new era of smart connectivity – enabling everything from Industry 4.0 applications to autonomous vehicles, augmented reality, and urban infrastructure.

The trend towards cloudification is also enabling new business models – and job opportunities. In fact, according to one study, cloud computing is expected to create 1.6 million new jobs. To fill these roles, companies are actively seeking experts and specialists who not only understand the fundamentals of networking and cloud computing, but who can use their knowledge to drive innovative new business models.

With the Cloud and Network Infrastructures (CNI) programme at EIT Digital Master School, you’ll not only build the skills you need to compete for these often high-paying jobs, you will have the confidence to lead the ‘cloudification’ starting on day one.

What you will gain

We use a combination of face-to-face workshops, group activities, and hands-on exercises to cover a range of topics, including network management, operation, and design; cloud service and deployment models; implementation strategies; and application design.

The Cloud and Networking Infrastructure programme also equips you with practical skills in, for example, edge and fog computing, blockchain technology, distributed ledgers, and next generation wireless technologies.

All of this will leave you well-positioned to secure such roles as:

  • Network designers
  • Network planners
  • ICT managers
  • Cloud CTO
  • Cloud software engineer
  • Lead software Developer
  • Cloud service broker
  • Cloud alliance manager
  • Cloud infrastructure architect
  • Business developer
  • Product manager
  • Consultant

To enhance the learning experience, the programme includes an opportunity to apply your new skills and knowledge towards creating new products and services – even help bring them to market.

Unlock new career opportunities

Careers in cloud and network infrastructures are simply exploding. You will leave this programme with the training and skills needed to unlock a range of career opportunities. Our CNI graduates can be found working in open innovation settings and leading technology companies, including in such sectors as telecommunications, e-commerce, e-learning, web development, and cloud operations. Thanks to the specialised training in entrepreneurship this programme provides, some graduates have even gone on to launch their own successful innovative start-ups and consultancies.
