New Cloud Academy (a non-profit company) was established to provide education of the Internet of Everything!
With the motto ‘Building for the Future’, the academy teaches people to enter the world of automation and allow ‘things’ to interact with people, thereby extending and enhancing our human senses. Think of communicating with someone on the other side of the world, or even on another planet, by means of devices that make the experience a virtual reality. Or controlling machines and processes in industry from the comfort of your armchair.
The Discovery courses allow students to explore the world of microcomputers and mechatronics at a regulated pace to achieve understanding of how data is used by all kind of ‘things’ and transformed into usable knowledge.
New Cloud Academy continuously develops new courses encompassing people, things, processes and data to make life fun! We are creating an environment that educates, informs and inspires.
New Cloud Academy has a collective passion to run engineering education programmes that recognise different student learning needs and interests that meet the urgent demands of dynamic engineering industries. Courses developed by the Cape Town School of Engineering are incorporated into the New Cloud Academy courses.
