Certificate programs offer working professionals an opportunity to increase their knowledge and skills in the specific areas of information technology. A certificate representing proven academic performance is presented after the required coursework is completed with a GPA of 3.0/4.0. All courses may be later applied toward the Master of Information Technology and Management degree or the Master of Cyber Forensics and Security degree for those who apply and are accepted to the degree program. Applicants should have a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university; the degree need not be in an information technology or a computer-related field. Prerequisites may be required for some courses in certificates; these prerequisites will not be applied to the certificate.

This program is designed for students seeking knowledge that will prepare them for careers in digital voice and data communications.
