Organizations in Canada are undergoing revolutionary changes in the ways they build their business strategies with the advent of increased mobile technology, cloud computing, and data analytics. The Lambton College Cloud Computing for Big Data, Ontario College Graduate Certificate allows students the opportunity to gain an understanding of these cutting edge technologies and applications of cloud computing and its virtualization used in servers, desktops, embedded and mobile devices. The curriculum will delve into Big Data as a collection of large and complex data sets and the challenges of capture, curation, storage, search, sharing, and visualization. In addition to a full range of enhanced virtualization deployment, cloud computing and Big Data theory, students apply this knowledge to a variety of open-source and vendor-specific virtualization solutions. To synthesize all student learning outcomes, the co-op work term or applied project provides the components necessary to improve graduate employability competencies. These graduates have the training to fully integrate internet communications and interactions in cloud computing along with the sensitive nature of personal and business data in such positions as cloud systems administrators, systems programmers and network administrators. Students who have earned a bachelor's degree from their home country as well as graduate from this post-graduate certificate program at Lambton College may transfer credits toward a master degree program at Davenport University. For more information, contact Rachel Buckner at Davenport University. Note: This is not a Big Data Analytics program. It is a cloud computing program that focuses on the infrastructure required to allow for Big Data analysis to occur. Students interested in Big Data Analytics are recommended to consider Big Data Science and Informatics.
