Characteristics of studies:

Cloud and DevOps Academy is a two-semester postgraduate study aimed at preparing a graduate to work as a Cloud and DevOps Engineer.

The program is run fully in English and fully in online mode. 

The program includes three modules – Engineering Excellence, DevOps and Cloud, and Project-based practice (internship). It covers the following topics: People in IT, Clean Code, Clean Design, Engineering Operations Model, Software development life cycle and VCS, Advanced Systems Administration, Networking, CI/CD, AWS, Azure, Infrastructure as code, Enterprise Delivery Platform.

The internship and laboratory classes will be run by academic teachers and experienced industry experts from EPAM Systems – a leading IT company.  


The study program includes 121 hours of lectures and laboratory classes and a three-month lasting internship where students, supervised by industry experts, will get experience in realizing real practical DevOps and Systems Engineering tasks.
