Solutions architects are the experts that bridge business objectives with technical solutions in the cloud. They have the skills necessary to choose the best tools for cloud-based business problems, creating available, cost-efficient, fault-tolerant, and scalable systems on Amazon Web Services (AWS). With the LSU online AWS Solutions Architect Certificate program, students explore AWS-recommended architectural principles and best practices through Amazon-certified learning objectives.
Learners will gain the skills needed to find and create solutions to various cloud computing problems and be able to communicate cloud-related information from the perspective of both the client and the vendor. This program equips learners with a high-level understanding of cloud computing needed to sit for the AWS Solutions Architect certification exam, as well as earns students a unique digital badge upon completion.
