Internet and the World Wide Web play a central role in our society, and have changed the way software systems are engineered and provisioned. Recent advances in virtualization techniques as well as the emergence of Software-as-a Service (SaaS) and cloud-based paradigms have enabled new ways of providing and exploiting computing and IT resources over the Internet. This track aims specifically at preparing students to work in such a complex, dynamic and distributed environment. It gives both in-depth understanding of the key components in developing distributed software- and service-based systems over the Internet, and provides the students with technical and critical thinking skills for the design and performance evaluation of such systems.
