The International Institute of Information Technology, Bangalore (IIIT-B) has announced the launch of an Executive Post-Graduate Certificate programme in Cloud and DevOps for non-techies as an expansion of its academic portfolio. The enrolments for the programme are set to begin its first cohort on June 30.

The eight-month online course, powered by edtech and upskilling platform upGrad offers in-depth coverage of Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) services, including concepts tested in AWS and Azure exams. It also includes extensive hands-on training, and understanding of GenAI to improve workflows.

On the launch, Debabrata Das, Director, IIIT Bangalore expressed his thoughts and said, “DevOps serves as a distinct approach to enterprise software development, emphasising the necessity of cooperation, automation, and communication between software developers and IT operations teams. IIIT-B with its expertise in cloud development and DevOps has developed this comprehensive programme to meet future demands, thereby enabling the nation to build skills and expertise in this very important technical area.” 

“The launch of this programme is a direct response to the surging demand for DevOps and Cloud computing that we’ve been observing. In the last one year, we’ve seen nearly 1.4 lakh learners sign up for our free Tech & Data courses, and hence, this programme with IIIT-B will strike the right chord with tech and even non-tech enthusiasts,” said Mayank Kumar, Co-founder, and MD, upGrad.

The curriculum comprises over 50 interactive training sessions aimed at equipping participants with essential DevOps competencies. These sessions will cover key areas such as continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD), containerization with Docker and Kubernetes, and infrastructure as code (IaC). Learners will also gain insights into designing scalable microservices architectures, implementing effective monitoring and logging strategies, and harnessing AI tools for code analysis, security optimization, and process automation. 

Additionally, practical hands-on exercises will prepare students for certification exams such as AWS Academy Cloud Foundations, Azure Fundamentals, and AZ-104, enhancing their overall learning experience.
