DevOps is an important emerging technology that has become a foundation of agile software development and deployment over the last ten years. Today, every organization that depends on software in its products, services, and operations is looking to adopt DevOps methods and practices. These organizations need skilled DevOps professionals who are ready from the day they are hired to help them turn ideas into market-ready software applications.
Choosing to become a DevOps engineer is a smart career choice. DevOps engineers stand out from other software professionals because they have the specialized skills needed for Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment. But if you plan to become a DevOps engineer to stand out in the software industry, you should choose a learning program that will help you stand out from all other DevOps engineers.
Simplilearn is proud to introduce the Post Graduate Program in DevOps in partnership with the California Institute of Technology Center for Technology and Management Education. The Caltech CTME-Simplilearn partnership brings together the deep technology expertise and experience of Caltech and the digital skills training delivery of Simplilearn.
Origins of the California Institute of Technology (Caltech)
Throop University was founded in Pasadena, California, in 1891, but its journey to becoming Caltech really began when astronomer George Ellery Hale of the Mount Wilson Observatory became a member of its board of trustees in 1907. Hale changed the focus of the institution to engineering and scientific research and education.
By 1921, chemist Arthur A. Noyes and physicist Robert A. Millikan joined the faculty of what was by then known as the California Institute of Technology. Millikan became Caltech’s President, and he and his successors set the Institute on its path to preeminence in academics and scientific research.
Caltech: A World Leader in Technology and Research
Caltech has taught some of the world’s most renowned engineers and scientists how to think creatively and ask questions that lead to innovative technology solutions. In its history, 38 alumni and faculty members from Caltech have won the Nobel Prize in their fields of research, and 36 more Nobel laureates came to Caltech to teach and conduct research. Six members of the Caltech community have won the Turing Award in Computer Science, and 13 have received the National Medal of Technology and Innovation.
Caltech is a renowned center for computer science research. In fields from economics to bioengineering, Caltech applies advanced computational expertise in interdisciplinary ways to help scientists and policymakers solve complex problems. Caltech researchers have engineered computer networks to boost data transfer speeds to record levels, developed data analysis methods that preserve individual privacy, and applied computer science to make breakthroughs in DNA computing, synthetic biology, and algorithmic game theory. Caltech Center for Technology and Management Education (CTME) specializes in post graduate educational programs in areas that include data analytics, cybersecurity, and project management.
Caltech Training Increases Your Value to Industry
Caltech places particular emphasis on technology transfer to industry. Caltech CTME instructors are drawn from research, engineering, venturing, commercialization, manufacturing, operations, and executive roles at technology-driven organizations and government agencies. Their real-world industry experience helps learners develop new ways of thinking about their organizations' most pressing problems and give them the technology and management skills to solve them. Throughout its history, Caltech has applied its research and scientific and engineering knowledge to the commercial sector. Examples of current industry partnerships include joining with Amazon Web Services to create the Center for Quantum Computing that will accelerate the development of quantum computing hardware and software, and collaborating with. Disney Research on robotic and artificial intelligence for human-machine interaction.
Having Caltech in one’s educational history carries a special status. Caltech quotes a Caltech undergrad in its This Is Caltech brochure:
“I have always wanted to use my education to make the world a better place. In addition to equipping me with the necessary foundational scientific principles, Caltech has shown me that meaningful interdisciplinary collaboration with my peers is key to achieving this goal.”
– Rupesh Jeyaram (BS ’20) Computer Science, quoted in This Is Caltech
