About

The MSc in Cloud Computing at Cork Institute of Technology is taught online using Cloud based technologies, so students can learn about the cloud in the cloud. Learning technologies such as Blackboard, Adobe Connect, and virtualised lab infrastructures are just some of the systems that are used to deliver this innovative programme. 

Overview

Cloud Computing at Cork Institute of Technology is considered a relatively new field in Internet computing where novel perspectives in internetworking technologies have emerged. To successfully deal with issues relating to this new paradigm the MSc in Cloud Computing programme aims to equip the graduate with the advanced conceptual understanding, detailed factual knowledge, and specialist architectural and technical skills required to design and implement cloud based solutions and services.

Learning outcomes

More recently the convergence of the cloud with big data has created additional opportunities for IT professionals to gain valuable insights into their business data. Such insights are critical for companies to maintain their competitive edge, increase their  revenues and deliver new innovative services and solutions. The programme also aims to address the skills gap in this area so the graduate is equipped with not only the skills to store the data in the cloud but also to derive meaningful analytics from it to deliver true business value.

The content seeks to reflect current and likely future practice in cloud planning and management, the design and management of virtual environments, data analytics, the consolidation of data centres, security techniques in multi-tenant virtualised environments and related areas that contribute to the building of both private and public cloud environments.
