    Anyone with experience with CityU's cloud computing focused MS in computer systems? The program is partly sponsored by, and the program seem to be totally revamped with new courses (courses in the program are not found in their current catalog). Interestingly, one can't even apply for it yet? Anyone with experience with City U?

    Also, looking for a program - masters or grad cert that offer the following object-oriented programming courses:

    programming in C
    programming in C++
    programming in Java

    any ideas? please share....

    Interesting program, cloud computing will be increasingly important in the future ... this is a 48 credit program, 16 courses, whereas most similar programs are 10 or 12 courses. At $656/credit, the total tuition cost comes out to $31,488 which is not cheap ...

    That does sound expensive; however, the study topic is fantastic.
  4. My concern is that it ends up like an eCommerce degree in 10 years time - I'd suggest if anything a more general degree with some cloud-oriented courses.

    It's not even a "cloud" degree. They mention it, but it's a MS in CS.

    SOA, SaaS, and "cloud" principles are going to be here for awhile. I think it's a nice offering. The funny thing is most still don't get "ecommerce" and still struggle with the tech and ideals.
