Professional Development in Enterprise Computing
The M.S. in Enterprise Computing is intended to educate high-end IT professionals with an interest in enterprise computing. Students learn about distributed computing from both the reliability and the security points of view, including service oriented architecture. This program has a particular emphasis on systems administration and governance. A typical backend setup will involve several virtualized servers, running heterogeneous guest operating systems on top of hypervisors, organized in a highly available cluster. Data processing and web service applications will have service level agreements (SLAs) that must be honored.
Enterprise Security and Privacy
Depending on the student's interests, deep exploration is available in security and privacy aspects of enterprise applications, including the incorporation of security and privacy measures into business processes in order to comply with organizational and legislative requirements. The Enterprise Computing program includes courses that cover technical, management, and legal aspects of enterprise security and privacy, including security governance, privacy concerns, and best practices for secure systems.
