The Cloud Computing and Services (CCS) programme is offered by EIT Digital Master School. Cloud Computing is the outsourcing of IT resources like servers, storages, network, and services and their provisioning over the Internet. Its advantages, when compared to self-operated IT resources, are significant cost reductions and increased elasticity, which is due to the fact that the IT resources can be simultaneously and flexibly shared among many customers by the concept of virtualisation.
The technical major is the transfer of knowledge in technology platforms, practical skills, and formal foundations that are needed to understand state-of-the-art cloud solutions to implement distributed software applications on top of them. The programme also focuses on future directions of cloud computing, for example, in the fields of edge and fog computing as well as blockchains and distributed ledger applications respectively.
The technical skills will be extended with a comprehensive understanding of user driven innovation and how to build business models and business cases. Students get the chance to get in contact with Europe’s leading companies and start-ups and conduct an industry-based internship at one of these companies. Successful students receive a degree from both universities they visited during their two-years study as well as a certificate from EIT Digital.
Graduates qualify for jobs in international and local organisations in both technical and business roles. Typical titles are:
Entry - 1st year, common courses
Exit - 2nd year, specialisation
All EIT Digital Master School programmes, among which Cloud Computing and Services, follow the same scheme:
