The Computer Science department offers three graduate certificates for students who wish to take graduate courses in an area of interest. Unlike M.S. programs which require a minimum of 30 graduate credits (10 courses), the graduate certificates below only require 12 credits (4 courses):
- Information Security and Assurance Graduate Certificate
- Software Engineering Graduate Certificate
- Web-Based Software Engineering Graduate Certificate
Course work toward these certificates can be used for credit toward the MS in the related program. Additionally, the certificates may be pursued concurrently with any of the graduate degree programs in the Volgenau School of Engineering.
