Why study Cloud and Network Infrastructures (CNI) at EIT Digital Master School?
Cloud and Network Infrastructures provides a comprehensive view of network and cloud computing. Students will learn to master network management, operation, and design on the one hand and cloud service and deployment models, implementation strategies, and application design on the other. The programme also focuses on future directions of cloud computing, for example, in the fields of edge and fog computing as well as blockchains and distributed ledger applications respectively.
The curriculum combines the technical major in Cloud and Network Infrastructures (Technical major 75%) with a minor in Innovation & Entrepreneurship (I&E) (business minor 25%). You will learn how to bring innovation to the market and how to develop a successful business model. These additional entrepreneurial skills will give you your ticket to a successful career.
