Now is the time to future-proof your career with our online Diploma in Cloud Engineering, where you learn to tackle complex cloud-based projects in the real world. And, you can study this diploma for free as part of the Government’s new Targeted Training and Apprenticeship Fund.

You’ll learn to design and build scalable and reliable cloud-based solutions that tests your problem-solving skills and builds your working knowledge of network infrastructure and security.

We believe in learning by doing, so you’ll spend less time on theory and more time working in a team on relevant and stimulating assignments.

This Diploma in Cloud Engineering helps you gain expertise in designing, planning, and scaling cloud implementations. Our Cloud Engineering course helps you master the core skill sets required to design and deploy dynamically scalable and reliable applications on popular cloud providers such as Microsoft Azure and AWS.

Here’s a taste of what you’ll learn:

  • Assess risks for security in a cloud environment and use specialised knowledge to implement and manage multi tenancy.
  • Apply advanced knowledge to configure a hybrid cloud environment.
  • Implement advanced level scripting to support complex autonomous and flexible environments. 
  • Research and apply design concepts to implement and configure a platform to support a multi-vendor cloud scenario. 

Our Tech Faculty have built, and continue to build, strong partnerships with leading tech educators and organisations in New Zealand and around the world, boosting our students’ skills and graduates’ visibility within the tech industry. A direct result of this gives our year two cloud engineer students access to AWS certifications, which upon successful completion, enhances their career opportunities.
