School of Computing and Engineering students meet Amazon Web Services

AWS manager Matthew Pye at the University of West London

Technology company, Amazon Web Services (AWS), visited the University of West London (UWL) for a talk with students about its graduate program.

Around 60 undergraduate and postgraduate students from the School of Computing and Engineering (SCE) attended a presentation by AWS – which is an Amazon.com company.  AWS provides large computing capacity and online services for clients, using cutting-edge cloud-based technology.

Students at the presentation had the chance to question AWS Premium Support Operations Manager, Matt Pye, about the growing cloud computing industry and opportunities for working at AWS.

The SCE works closely with AWS and is an early adopter of the AWS Academy program. Two members of staff at the School are AWS Academy Accredited Instructors – Dr Wei Jie and Dr Samia Oussena – and AWS cloud computing technology is incorporated into teaching activities at the SCE.

Dr Wei Jie said: ‘Cloud computing jobs are in demand and students can add value to their qualifications by including knowledge of AWS. This area is highly relevant in industry, so it was great to see our students keen to learn more.’
