Graduate Certificate in Cloud Computing

The Occupational Outlook Handbook 2018, published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, reports the employment of computer and information technology occupations is projected to grow 13% from 2016 to 2026, faster than the average for all occupations. These occupations are projected to add about 557,100 new jobs. Demand for these workers will stem from greater emphasis on cloud computing, the collection and storage of big data, and information security.

A certificate that demonstrates proficiency in areas related to cloud computing serves both the student and community, allowing corporations’ access to the trained workforce required to compete in today’s high-tech landscape and provide opportunities for students to compete for some of the best technical jobs available.
