Looks like it replaces their B.S. Cloud and Systems Administration degree?

These niche degrees they've been moving to in the past few years are a bit much.
In Progress: MS Cybersecurity, Georgia Tech (12/32cr), 2021?
BS IT Security, Western Governors University, 2018
BA Psychology, Thomas Edison State University, 2016
AA Sociology, Chaffey College, 2015

The changes to the degree requirements happened a few months ago.  The name change happened more recently.

Honestly, my husband liked the sound of the previous title better. I don't care much for the updated version either!

Either one is fine with mine, he doesn't really care. The word "cloud" is enough.

I feel like WGU's focus on the name choice for degrees is a disservice. Algorithms are looking for Computer Science, Computer Information Systems, Information Technology. Deviating from that makes the degree look odd and suspect if you're just scanning quick and don't know what WGU is.

Why people don't just knock out the B.S. Information Technology degree is beyond me. WGU's certification model makes it too specific to be really helpful. No MCSA Microsoft Certs? Linux? VMware? Azure? A Cloud Engineer needs to know Linux very deep, but they barely touch it.When someone has a WGU degree, i just think "Okay, they spent $15k to get a AWS/CCNA/insert cert here.

If WGU had been a for profit school using industry certification for it's coursework, people would be up at arms about it. WGU rubs me the wrong way for some reason.
In progress:
Penn Foster: A.S. Industrial Electronics & Electrical Technology

End goal:
TESU: BS Electronics Systems Engineering OR Energy Systems OR Electrical Technology
