Program Overview


Cloud Computing is the delivery of computing services—servers, storage, databases, networking, software, analytics, intelligence, and moreover the Internet (“the cloud”) to offer faster innovation, flexible resources, and economies of scale. Cloud technology is being implemented by more than 50% of businesses. They are using this technology to run their organizations efficiently, serve their clientele better, and increase profitability. No doubt why Cloud Computing is the number 1 skillset globally for last few years. 

To build a career in Cloud one needs to become a complete professional – this goes beyond tools-based certifications, which is why one needs a 5.5-month PGCP. Masters in Cloud Computing can help professionals to expand their knowledge in the domain. This will not only equip the learner with industry-standard tools & techniques to become job-ready today but also build core concepts &  competencies to prepare them for the promising future. The PG Certificate Program in Cloud Computing provides all the learners with a broader understanding of this new technology and takes them through multiple cloud platforms with a scenario-based hands-on lab. With MS in Cloud Computing learners will get hands-on experience on the migration of local apps to the cloud. The Masters in Cloud Computing in India course also addresses the various aspects of the technology for Networking Professionals, Developers, Consultants, and Architects. Right from building their own network till deploying the web applications and using emerging technology services on Cloud like Jenkins, Ansible, Chef, on the cloud, Running Hadoop Cluster, Using Machine Learning and IoT on Cloud, all of this is covered in this post graduate in cloud computing.

The program offers a robust set of free tools, resources and AWS Promotional Credits for students and educators to skill upon the cloud and accelerate cloud-related learning endeavors.

For further details –

There are several benefits to students, after they are approved, they are provisioned AWS Promotional Credits for free access to AWS tools and services. They receive specialized content & hands-on activities designed to get students comfortable with the basics of cloud computing and other in demand skills such as Machine Learning, Cybersecurity, software development and nine additional Cloud Career Pathways, each with 30+ hours of learning content, along with the ability to earn AWS badges for different competencies such as IoT, Alexa, and gaming. AWS Educate starter accounts allow students to enroll without a credit card and still use AWS Services. In addition, there is the AWS Educate Job Board with cloud-related jobs from top tech partner companies and Amazon.

Yes, They are in fact the right candidates for cloud technology. IT Giants are looking for people who can work in traditional IT technologies but are also comfortable with working on cloud services which are available in the market today. By using cloud, they can easily apply existing skill sets to test or develop a better cloud based applications. 

An early entrant will reap the benefits of growing market, we all can see today, techies aged 27 to 32 are sitting at Top Management Levels, that is all because of the sudden growth in demand pertaining to that technology. Growth in Cloud would be very similar, anybody who learns and brings it to practise will reap the benefits and grow. As you would be regarded on your skillset and talent to manage a new technology, so you would be the best choice for innovations from employers point of view. We all can see companies asking fresh engineers to be able to work on Cloud , Devops, Data Science, Machine Learning , Deep Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Computer vision, as companies need people who can give innovative solutions and have modern skillsets. Anybody who needs or wants to work on innovation has to work in Cloud to utilize best data sources and develop a robust application.

There are no special skill sets but an IT Engineer today should by default know how to work on cloud platforms . My experience says that person who suggests solution based on cloud and saves dollars , reduce risk , is able to code, are in huge demand in the IT industry today. For some time, Cloud architect will remain at the top of all the positions as companies are building themselves in cloud technology to be at a respectable position in the market and going forward the administrators and managers will be in huge demand on cloud based projects / program.  

(Coder/Cloud based Coder + Cloud Based Solutions + Cloud tools)

There are different areas where innovation is taking place and all IT giants are in race to be on the top. As I see and observe, AI/Big data/ Hadoop/ML /Deep Learning/Computer Vision and IOT are future of IT , but if you observe closely all this is happening because of privileges provided by Cloud platforms and that’s why it becomes easy for companies in the IT and other industry to hire someone who knows how to work on different cloud platform and use tools to analyse that data and provide a suitable/Innovative solution to the management/ Client. In fact, this is one of the top skill sets industry is looking forward . Demand supply gap is very high here . AWS and GCP are spending large amounts to come with services which cater this data analysis requirement.

Today, IT industry is focusing on better coding in software applications. Cloud gives you that provision / platform / time to focus on good quality of coding and improve overall quality of applications . Software engineers are in huge demand by companies, working or planning to work on cloud as the whole focus is to develop cloud based solutions. You can very easily observe how Indian Market is moving on cloud , every bank has developed application and they don’t want you to come to the branch. Changes are taking place, with all the startups and applications are based on cloud platforms now. Cloud computing training will you give you an edge in your career.
