The aim of the course is to prepare the students for the rapidly changing field of cloud computing, preparing them not only for the job they will have after graduation, but also the job they will have in the future. As a result, besides teaching cloud computing, the course will also teach students how to learn and stay up-to-date with theory and technology in the area of cloud computing.
The course consists of two parts: Part 1 seminars, 4.5 credits This part covers theoretical models and definitions as well as practical aspects of cloud computing, including the fundamentals of data centers, hardware and OS virtualization, and how to design and build applications that are scalable, robust and elastic.
Part 2, practice, 3 credits The laboratory part depeens the knowledge acquired in the theoretical part by applying it in relevant real-life situations. This part consists of a single, mandatory assignment.
Univ: To be admitted you must have (or equivalent) 90 ECTS-credits including 60 ECTS-credits in Computing Science or 2 years of completed studies within a study programme (120 ECTS-credits). In both cases, including a course on advanced level in Distributed systems, (e.g. 5DV186).
Proficiency in English equivalent to Swedish upper Secondary course English A/5. Where the language of instruction is Swedish, applicants must prove proficiency in Swedish to the level required for basic eligibility for higher studies.
