About this Course

This two year part-time Higher Diploma in Cloud Computing aims to develop students both technically and personally and produce focused graduates of high academic and practical standards to match the needs of both the Irish and international IT industry. It will also meet the needs for IT infrastructure and support roles in a broad range of other sectors. The programme will be delivered exclusively online using CIT's state of the art eLearning system. Labs are hosted 24/7 on CIT's world class private cloud infrastructure. During the first year students will be immersed in a broad set of modules in the fundamentals of computing covering: Object Oriented Principles, Requirements Engineering, Network Systems, Operating Systems, Data Management Systems, Server-Side Web Development, Cloud Architecture, Cloud Computing with Python, Cloud Infrastructure, Computer Science Project.

In the second year the focus will be on developing Cloud Infrastructure skills.
