Build Cloud-Based Solutions

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.

This program can stack up toward the AWS Cloud Computing Specialist Certificate program. To enroll in the AWS Solutions Architect program, you must have either: (a) completed the AWS Cloud Practitioner Certificate or (b) have an AWS Cloud Practitioner certification earned elsewhere. The Solutions Architect certification is the second certification in the AWS Learning Path.


Professional development instructor Melinda Stallings explains the importance of being able to show off your skills in a digital format when looking for a job.
