University of Montana Catalog 2023-2024

Cloud Computing C.T.S.

The Certificate of Technical Skills in Cloud Computing is designed to provide the foundations for students to understand, use, and provision cloud resources. As cloud computing becomes ever more prevalent in society these skills become ever more necessary. Students will gain competence in general networking and network infrastructure; installation, use, and administration of Operating Systems; Virtualization; fundamental security concepts; and cloud computing concepts, use, and provisioning.

This certificate is mostly a subset of the courses leading to an Associate of Applied Science in Information Technology (either concentration: Network Administration and Security or Programming and Application Development) as well as closely aligned with a BS in Management Information Systems. It is expected that students completing those degrees could complete the certificate with the addition of one or two courses.
