About this course:

This course provides a hands-on introduction to Amazon Web Services (AWS), architecture, deployment, and management. AWS has revolutionized IT infrastructure and is the dominant cloud services provider with more than six billion dollars in revenues. AWS replaces on-premises infrastructure with scalable low cost services. There is a high demand for professionals with experience architecting AWS services. In this course, students architect AWS services for computer storage, applications, database, networking, security, identity management, and content delivery. Progressive lab exercises and projects deploying actual AWS services prepare students for real-world application. The Amazon-developed curriculum can prepare students for the AWS Certified Solution Architect Associate certification exam. International students: due to recent changes in SEVIS requirements for F-1 visa holders, international students must be enrolled in 12 units to be a full-time student. Of those 12 units, two courses must be In-person or Hybrid (In-person).  To remain in status for your F-1 visa you must attend three in-person class sessions for each of your In-person or Hybrid (In-person) UNEX courses.  All three in-person class sessions are mandatory and must be attended. Domestic students: are strongly encouraged to attend the three in-person class sessions. If a domestic student is unable to attend an in-person class session, they must notify their program advisor/representative to ask for alternative arrangements that will allow them to complete the coursework requirements for these three sessions. The dates of these sessions will be identified in your course syllabus.
