The Electronics & ICT (E&ICT) Academy of the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Roorkee and online learning platform Intellipaat have signed a Memorandum Of Understanding (MOU) to launch an advanced certification program in Cloud Computing and DevOps.
Cloud computing principles, DevOps tools, AWS, Virtualisation, Cloud Security, and other topics will be covered in the seven-month advanced certification program. Faculty from IIT Roorkee and industry experts will lead the course, which aims to help professionals learn the most in-demand skills.
Learners will participate in a variety of hands-on exercises and project work as part of this online program. All enrolled students will receive career services from Intellipaat, including mock interview preparation and 1:1 mentorships.
According to IIT Roorkee, every firm is going towards Cloud and DevOps, which have been named as two of the most in-demand technologies of the future and must-have skills for software professionals.
India is expected to create 60 million to 65 million jobs by 2025 in a variety of industries where Cloud computing and DevOps skills are critical, according to LinkedIn's 2020 Emerging Jobs Report India. The trend toward cloud usage has accelerated significantly in the recent year, as the COVID-19 compelled organisations to enable and support more remote, distributed workforces, says IIT Roorkee.
"Cloud Computing and DevOps are some of the major skills that organisations are emphasising on when hiring candidates," says Diwakar, Founder and CEO of Intellipaat. Companies will continue to seek qualified professionals with these talents as the cloud computing business grows even faster than it has in recent years."
According to Sanjeev Manhas, principal investigator, E&ICT, IIT Roorkee, Career advancement and upskilling are essential for continuous professional success in today's highly competitive and more virtual learning environment. The specialised certification will put the students ahead of the competition in their areas.
