The overall aim of this programme is to develop students with the skills and knowledge to design, build and extend the internet infrastructure and to design a variety of distributed applications.
Cloud Computing is a specialisation of computer networking that is concerned with the management of large data in data centres, virtualisation and the provision of cloud services.
Applicants to this programme would typically be technically minded, and they may have previously studied engineering, computing or the sciences. This programme is designed for students interested in computer networks but specialising in areas such as virtualisation and the computer systems used in data centre that support cloud based services. They would also be interested in databases and developing an understanding of managing and analysing big data, and implementing cloud services.
Applicants for this programme will be interested in computer networking and networked application development, and are likely to have some web programming experience. Students will study a balance of modules around the themes of data storage technologies and cloud based services including both the provision and consumption of those services.
Large scale data is stored in data centres and with networked services provided using virtualisation technologies, while “big data” requires a number of different application specific approaches for storage and analysis. Graduates will also be able to implement services to provide this data for manipulation and analysis by a variety of applications they will also be able to develop. Graduates of this programme would be expected to seek employment as data analysts, application developers, data centre engineers, etc.
