Program description

Cloud Computing and Blockchain - Post-Graduate Certificate

The post-graduate certificate in cloud computing and blockchain will prepare students for the challenges of evaluating the feasibility, designing, and implementing cloud-based solutions that fulfill the requirements of specific business cases. Additionally, the program content will provide students with the cognitive and technical skills to evaluate blockchain technologies beyond cryptocurrencies. Therefore, they can design and implement blockchain-based solutions.

The program content is based on the expectation that students will have developed necessary digital-literacy skills, such as online research, sharing information to create knowledge, being responsible online, among others, in their undergraduate information and communication technology degree and that the Cloud Computing and Blockchain post-graduate certificate program will enhance their existing knowledge and skills.

Students will study cloud computing in the following fields:

  • provision of cloud computing, storage, and networking resources
  • security of cloud-based solutions
  • migration of on-premises systems and databases
  • design of hybrid architectures
  • monitoring and auditing of cloud-based solutions
  • cost management and business continuity
  • evaluation and design of cloud-based solutions to save costs and optimize resources

Students will also study blockchain technologies in the following fields:

  • the role and impact of cryptocurrencies in our economy
  • evaluation and design of smart contracts
  • analysis of the deployment and operational cost of smart contracts
  • analysis and design of solutions that integrate on-chain and off-chain components
  • evaluation and design of blockchain-based solutions to provide high reliability, transparency, and fault tolerance.

The program structure allows students to experience the challenges and pressures of emerging cloud computing demand in such a way that they can develop their critical thinking to propose cloud-based solutions. The program structure also allows students to study blockchain technologies to identify the need to design solutions that integrate blockchain components.
