Whether you want to uncover the secrets of the universe, or you just want to pursue a career in the 21st century, basic computer programming is an essential skill to learn - Stephen Hawking
Free online Cloud Computing courses are currently on offer at Cork Institute of Technology (CIT) with tuition fees waived for all successful applicants. As part of the Irish Government's ICT Skills programme the Department of Computer Science at CIT are offering two Higher Diploma courses starting in September 2016. These part-time HEA funded courses are now open for application. Both are 60 credit courses and are designed as conversion courses for graduates of Science, Arts, Engineering or any other discipline. Applicants need to hold a Level 8 degree and demonstrate commitment to complete the course over 24 months online by night. These are highly successful courses and have been offered by CIT both online and on campus over the past 5 years. Staff in the Department of Computer Science work closely with companies to create graduate placement opportunities.
Both the Higher Diploma in Cloud Computing and the Higher Diploma in Cloud and Mobile Software Development have been designed and developed in consultation with a range of employers and provide conversion pathways for graduates that match the needs of the IT industry.
