The department offers the following graduate certificates related to various Masters programs:
- 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.
Students currently enrolled in a graduate program at Mason can obtain one certificate in conjunction with their graduate degrees. Please note that students in a MS program need to declare their intent to obtain a certificate in the semester before they graduate from the MS program, at the latest. In your penultimate semester or earlier, you should submit a Graduate Secondary Certificate Program Application form (available at the Registrar's Forms web page). Please complete the form and bring it, along with your transcript, to the CS department office to be signed by your advisor or the Department Chair.
