This unique degree program provides skills and credentials that can qualify graduates for a variety of positions in organizations all over the world. Any organization that uses operating system virtualization, cloud computing or data storage solutions needs people trained in storage and virtualization.
The program includes courses in Cisco routing and switching, Microsoft desktop and server operating systems, in-depth training with O/S virtualization and unique courses in data center storage hardware environments. Instruction in these areas can qualify students to take industry certification exams in VMWare, Cisco, Microsoft, CompTIA and NetApp.
This program also includes a co-op component, putting students to work with local employers for on-the-job training in data centers.
In June 2020, the National Science Foundation awarded ATE Grant #2055288 to Wake Tech's Cloud Infrastructure program for "Enhancing Preparation of Students for Technical Careers in Cloud Computing Technologies." The three-year grant funds a number of initiatives to improve the college's curriculum and expand internships for students.
Any student or an employer who wants to learn more about and possibly become part of the program should complete an interest form.
