Why study cloud computing in NCI?

The course:

National College of Ireland's MSc in Cloud Computing will provide you with the latest knowledge and competencies required by the fastest growing global industry: the Cloud. Cloud computing has become a multi-billion euro industry and this course offers specialisations in two key areas: Infrastructure (a.k.a. IaaS -Infrastructure as a Service) and Development (a.k.a. SaaS -Software as a Service). By focusing on the structured management of cloud architectural components, you will gain experience with the latest design principles, models, and technologies in cloud computing.

The course is available part-time where you will complete your studies in two years or you can study the course on a full-time basis over one academic year.

For the full-time version of this course there is a scholarship for EU students that incorporates a 50% reduction in the course fees. View the brochure (PDF 342 KB) for more information on the scholarship.

You will study in NCI's dedicated Cloud Competency Centre. This dedicated state-of-the-art facility supports comprehensive evaluation, grassroots incubation, and seamless adoption of cloud technologies for didactic, commercial, and research purposes.
