The college has partnered with Amazon Web Services’ AWS Educate program to offer a cloud computing specialization as part of its associate of applied science degree in information systems technology.

Teresa Carlson, the vice president of worldwide public sector business for Amazon Web Services, made the announcement at an AWS Public Sector Summit in D.C. Wednesday.

According to LinkedIn, the No. 1 in-demand global skill for the past three years in a row has been cloud and distributed computing.

The two-year ITS cloud computing degree program is a 63-credit associate degree mapped to the skills and competency-based credentials required by AWS and other employers using cloud-based-services. All students will also receive free membership in the AWS Educate program and access to hands-on experience with leading cloud technology and tools.
