Program Overview

Take your systems administration or application development career to the cloud.

Build on the information technology management and software development skills that you already have through the Cloud Development and Operations Ontario College Graduate Certificate program. Learn to design, build, and manage secure, scalable, and cost-effective solutions using the latest cloud-native tools. This program prepares you to meet the mounting demand for cloud computing professionals across all industries in both the public and private sectors. You benefit from the experience of faculty as you prepare for industry-recognized certifications in various cloud computing career paths.

Through authentic industry problems from industry advisors, you gain experience choosing between public-cloud, private-cloud, hybrid-cloud, and multi-cloud architectures. Practise migrating legacy applications and their data to new cloud hosted environments. Build highly available solutions that balance security and data privacy needs with time-to-market agility and cost-efficiency. Employing industry best practises, you compose containerized microservices, serverless functions, redundant message queues, and managed cloud database services to create full-stack cloud-native application solutions. Learn to manage infrastructure as code using open source and cloud platform-specific tools to automate many DevOps tasks like continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines, performance and compliance monitoring, and security audits.

Build industry relationships while completing an applied project for a real-world client. You integrate the technical knowledge and experience gained throughout the program and demonstrate your leadership and communications skills. Graduates are well prepared to complete recognized industry certifications including:

  • AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner
  • AWS Certified Solutions Architect
  • AWS Certified Developer
  • AWS Certified SysOps Administrator
  • Microsoft Certified: Azure Fundamentals
  • Microsoft Certified: Azure Developer Associate
  • Microsoft Certified: Azure Administrator Associate

Students also have the option to gain real-world experience through a paid co-operative education (co-op) work term (see Additional Information for more details). Please note that places in the co-op work term are subject to availability and academic eligibility. Please note admission to the co-op program does not guarantee a co-op placement.

Cloud computing skills are in-demand across most industry sectors, including retail, transportation, media, gaming, health care, and more. Upon graduation you may find employment in software development, DevOps, or professional services. You may work with small start-ups, established companies or governments of all levels.
