Shiv Nadar University (SNU), Delhi NCR

The Academy of Continuing Education (ACE), the executive education arm of Shiv Nadar University (SNU), Delhi NCR, and Bengaluru-based Jigsaw (a part of UNext), have come together to launch a certification programme in cloud computing. Set to begin in August 2022, the eight-month course is designed for early-level cloud computing professionals. The programme provides detailed coverage of AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, and other integral cloud concepts.

The ACE faculty at SNU has collaborated with industry experts to design the curriculum of the programme. Bibek Banerjee, Dean, Shiv Nadar University’s School of Management and Entrepreneurship, and Academy of Continuing Education, said, “The Academy of Continuing Education (ACE) is the key driver of the university’s strategic collaborations in R&D and capacity building with the industry. The certificate programme in cloud computing has been designed by ACE in collaboration with industry experts to help early-career learners transform into complete cloud professionals.”

‘Beyond basics of cloud’

The programme is for individuals with 50 per cent or more in their undergraduate degree in science or commerce. After completing the course, Shiv Nadar University will award a certificate of completion and a university transcript equivalent to 15 credits for all the participants who meet the academic standards as specified by the university. Professionals pursuing the course will receive 225 hours of live instructor-led online classes as part of the course.

Sarita Digumarti, Co-Founder, Jigsaw, said, “The eight-month programme starts by covering the most basic concepts of cloud computing but does not stop there. The industry-relevant curriculum has been formulated to help participants go beyond just a basic understanding of the domain by working on 100+ hour-long hands-on assignments, multiple case studies, one migration-specific capstone project.”
