Overview

Why study Cloud and Network Infrastructures at EIT Digital?

Cloud and Network Infrastructures provides a comprehensive view on network and cloud computing. Students will learn to master network management, operation, and design on the one hand and cloud service and deployment models, implementation strategies, and application design on the other. The programme also focuses on future directions of cloud computing, for example, in the fields of edge and fog computing as well as blockchains and distributed ledger applications respectively.

Today’s networks are reaching their limit because of an increased number of devices connected to the Internet, rapid traffic growth and quantity of data exchanged online. This led to the physical split of Cloud Computing and networks. By bringing cloud computing closer to the network, the benefits of the next generation of wireless technologies is that of being flexible, safe and cheap. This will allow real-time big data analysis and improved application performance.

The cloudification of networks enables new application fields like smart cities, Industrial Internet of Things, Industry 4.0, autonomous driving and augmented virtual reality. For instance, smart traffic signal will enable traffic lights to work in sync with connected vehicles, so drivers aren’t forced to seat at an empty intersection, waiting for the traffic light to turn green. Furthermore, the set of technical possibilities it offers is so innovative that it will also enable new business models and business opportunities bringing tremendous changes in society overall.

Experts and specialists working in this field need to understand the fundamentals of networking and cloud computing, and they must be capable of making judgements of how innovations in these fields affect existing business models or can create new ones.

EIT Digital Master School offers a unique two-year academic programme, whereby students study Cloud and network Infrastructures, innovation and entrepreneurship at two different leading European universities. At the same time, they also acquire extensive business skills by learning how to bring an innovation to the market and developing a successful business model. These additional entrepreneurial skills will give students their ticket to a successful career.
