What's Included

Cloud computing allows us to create and share information anywhere in the world in seconds, revolutionizing our relationships with data, money and one another. In this course, students will learn how cloud computing works, and how to take advantage of huge datacentres to share data, communicate, collaborate and generate new information. Participants will create their own websites on the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) or on the Faculty’s own cloud platform, SAVI, using it as a platform for advanced cloud applications. They will delve into the low-level protocols that drive the world wide web, building cables and wiring hardware together to create our class’ own private network. In a final project of their choosing, students will put cutting-edge technologies to work, using innovative tools that will become commonplace by the end of the decade.

About This Organizer

The Engineering Student Outreach Office (ESOO), created in Fall 2009, manages and administers the core outreach programs offered by the Faculty. We act as the central unit for outreach activities promoting Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education to a wide audience. We design and deliver programs centrally, and coordinate the activities by other entities including student organizations, Faculty members, and Departments. The vast majority of outreach activities supported by ESOO are pre-university programming.

The Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering is committed to inspiring youth within the community and across the world through outreach programming that focuses on engineering and applied sciences. These programs range from summer live-in programs to weekend courses during the fall and spring terms.
