High tech career training coming to UNH

UNH Professional Development & Training adds 2 new programs to build students' tech skills

UNH Professional Development & Training — whose mission is dedicated to enhancing the professional knowledge and skills of individuals and organizations in New Hampshire and surrounding communities — is launching two new non-degree, non-credit technology programs in partnership with virtual boot camp provider, StackRoute Learning, Inc. These programs are focused on two rapidly growing areas in the technology sector: cloud systems administration and data analytics.

The 20-week programs are designed to serve students possessing only basic tech-related knowledge and has been proven to build rapid mastery of foundational skills. Graduates of these in-demand programs learn practical skills that map to actual trending careers, enabling them to be job-ready on day one. Applications are now being accepted for these programs.

Cloud Systems Administration Program

The Cloud Systems Administration Program will provide students with a strong networking and OS foundation. With an emphasis on design, implementation and administration of IP networks, students become competent at Linux systems administration, and learn how to deploy and manage common applications and services using Linux servers. They learn essential survival skills in programming, relational databases, and will develop an automation mindset for routine IT infrastructure deployment, configuration and monitoring activities. This program will dive into three critical competency areas: SysOps administration, continuous monitoring and digital infrastructure automation.

Data Analytics Program

The Data Analytics Program will teach students to build a strong data analysis foundation, with a special emphasis on using relevant statistical tools, and data visualization using various graphs, charts and pivot tables in Excel. Students will learn Python programming and how to write programs to do statistical analysis using libraries such as NumPy and Pandas, and query and visualize data models using Tableau. Data modelling and data-based storytelling are two key aspects by which big data is leveraged for decision-making. Graduates of this program gain proficiency in data analysis, visualization, modelling and forecasting, and communicating and collaborating with all stakeholders.
