An IT professional who builds and maintains cloud infrastructure is known as a cloud engineer. Cloud engineers can work in a variety of roles, including cloud architecting (designing cloud solutions for businesses), development (cloud coding), and administration (working with cloud networks). In recent years, cloud computing has become commonplace. In fact, you almost certainly use cloud-based technology on a daily basis. Cloud technology allows you to watch TV or listen to music on your favorite streaming services, use an online email platform, and back up your phone pictures to the internet. For a business, this means that data can be stored and backed up more easily, software updates can be pushed out on demand, and customers may be able to access their data from multiple devices. You'll work behind the scenes as a cloud engineer to keep everything running smoothly.

To be successful in their roles, cloud engineers must hone specific cloud computing skills. These skills include everything from software development and database administration to change management and data security. It's also crucial to pay attention to details and work as part of a team. These abilities are similar to those acquired in a typical computer science course or by a professional working in a traditional on-premise computing environment. Many other computer science principles, such as computation, data structure, and system architecture, are also applicable to cloud computing. While there is often overlap between computer science and cloud computing coursework, there is value in specialized education and training for a career in cloud engineering. Specialized training in two key areas can help cloud engineers: gaining hands-on experience with cloud platforms and understanding how cloud resources are allocated and paid for.

This Cloud Engineer Career Path program is for you if you're looking for a Cloud Engineering, it will help you become an expert in cloud implementation design, planning, and scaling. Our Cloud Engineering course will teach you how to design and deploy dynamically scalable and reliable applications on three popular cloud platform providers: Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, and Google Cloud Platform. As companies continue to adopt cloud technology, cloud engineering is expected to grow in the next decade. Along with cybersecurity and database management, the ability to work with cloud technology will be one of the most in-demand skill sets in 2022.

How to become a Cloud Engineer

1) Develop the required skills through education - The education requirements for cloud engineering positions may be ambiguous at times, earning a degree or certificate in a related field can help you stand out. While some employers may prefer candidates with a bachelor’s degree, others require a Mater's Degree of Computer Science or related field.

2) Knowledge of leading cloud service providers and their platforms such as AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, IBM Cloud, Oracle Cloud, Salesforce, and so on

3) Programming skills, such as SQL, R, and Python

4) Cloud security

5) Machine learning and artificial intelligence

6) Development and maintenance of databases

Key skills required as a Cloud Engineer

Education: To work as a cloud engineer, applicants are required to have a minimum of Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science, or Engineering, or in other related technical field.

Certification: it is important that they have relevant cloud certifications such as Microsoft Certified Azure Solutions Architect or AWS Cloud Practitioner.

Knowledge: A cloud engineer must have adept technical skills and cognate experience to be hired. Employers seek expertise in a combination of the following areas: Practical object-oriented development knowledge with at least Scala or Java, knowledge of systems like ZooKeeper, Consul etc.

Collaborative skills: Part of the daily tasks of a Cloud Engineer is to work with cross-functional teams (Product Owners, Scrum Masters, Developers, Designers, and Business Analysts).

Communication skills: The cloud engineer works with people, including IT professionals and non-IT experts, so it is crucial that they have an exceptional verbal, presentation, and written communications skills to convey information clearly to the different audience.

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
