What is a PhD in Web Technologies & Cloud Computing?

part of Computer Science & IT

Web technologies and cloud computing both study web application technologies used on computers or various mobile devices. Web technologies create interfaces between web servers and clients, and insure safe usage of internet based applications and permanent access to information.

Cloud computing refers to internet-based computing systems used to deliver applications between computers through the internet. Cloud computing technologies use servers and software networks that allow users to upload and access data sources remotely, but also to make use of computer processes in real-time, without having to store any actual data on clouds.

Web technologies and cloud computing are strongly related to the general fields of computer sciences and business and technology, as well as more specialised areas such as IT security or business information systems.

Students will acquire relevant knowledge on: web design and development, principles of programming, information systems development, cloud systems in practice, and more.

Students will be able to evaluate data storage models and to design efficient web applications, while becoming proficient in programming languages and in configuring networks. They will gain project management skills needed for organising resources, making critical evaluations and establishing timelines for fulfilling goals.

Graduates can find jobs in the field as: cloud engineers/architects, business intelligence analysts, high-performance analysts, application consultants, and more.
