The AWS Educate Cloud Degree initiative is a collaborative effort between AWS Educate and leading educational institutions to develop degrees and certificates in cloud computing to prepare students from colleges, vocational schools, and technical academies for in-demand cloud jobs.

From no-cost introductory learning pathways for students to AWS cloud computing curricula designed for higher education institutions, AWS Educate gives learners and educators hands-on-experience with real-world cloud computing technology.


Cloud computing has been the #1 LinkedIn skill for four years in a row, and the average AWS certification salary tops $100K. There are millions of unfilled jobs in the cloud and – according to a 2015 Glassdoor report – the time to hire has increased by 80% from 2009 to 2015.

By working with college faculty – and their high school and four-year university partners – AWS Educate’s Cloud Degree initiative allows accredited educational institutions to integrate AWS content into their curriculum and create a cloud computing degree or certificate.
