CIT provides Cloud and Data Courses to address ICT skills shortage

Published on: Thursday, 07 March 2013

Application Closing Date March 11th

Tuition fees will be waived for all successful applicants.



CIT has launched a Big Data course. This new innovative Government-funded programme will complement the excellent Higher Diploma in Cloud Computing already offered by CIT. Both intensive programmes are designed to offer conversion pathways for graduates from cognate disciplines and will start in early April. Graduates will be work ready by January 2014. The programmes have been developed in close collaboration with employers and a cohort of 70 students through similar pathway in 2012 has been very successful in seeking employment.

With recent reports suggesting that the demand for “cloud-ready” IT workers will grow by 26% annually through 2015, with as many as 7 million cloud-related jobs available worldwide the programmes offered by CIT are both timely, visionary and designed to meet the future needs of the IT sector in Cork.
