Cloud Engineering University Module

Dominic Routley


Supervised by Padraig Corcoran; Moderated by David W Walker

I intend to create a proof-of-concept university module focusing on Cloud engineering/operations. This is not intended to be fully fleshed out as I believe that to do so would probably be beyond the scale of a three month project.

I do intend however that everything is at least described and any software that has to be used (either from an admin point of view or student point of view) is at least mocked up to show its potential usage.

Items that may be created:

- 2 Example coursework assignments and 1 example of 100% successful student submissions each. Plus explicit marking schemes

- An automated marking tool for 1 or more of the courseworks

- A example exam with explicit marking scheme and correct answers (I have links from my placement year with multiple cloud engineers and cloud consultants which I intend to utilise to get good questions and answers)

- A module outline of everything that would be covered (not necessarily assessed in the exam/coursework)

The above list is not exhaustive, neither is it not open to change. I would like there to be an operations/cloud module and this is what I *think* it would look like. However I am more than willing to bow to the superior knowledge of people who actually devise and run these modules.
