About this Program

Cloud computing is a model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services). Cloud computing has simultaneously transformed business and government, and created new security challenges at an unprecedented pace. The development of the cloud service model delivers business-supporting technology more efficiently than ever before.

This degree prepares students with the expertise, knowledge, and skills required in today's evolving cloud computing, virtualization, and security industry. In fact, IDC recently reported that �In 2012, more than 1.7 million jobs related to cloud computing remained unfilled worldwide. The reason for this is lack of training and certification� Both of these issues are addressed by this degree program in Cloud Computing and Virtualization Security.
