Network Science Certificate

This program provides education in Network Engineering to expand the horizons of technical professionals.

This certificate has been developed as a means for practicing technical professionals to develop new skills in network engineering. The program is part of GMU's response to the information technology worker shortage in Virginia. It combines an academic preparation that teaches principles of lasting applicability with hands-on training in today's networking technologies. Completion requires the participant to demonstrate the ability to do real network engineering, using both the academic and hands-on preparation.

The Network Science Certificate requires successful completion of the eight blocks in telecommunications, network protocols, network security, and network management. Each block consists of four online sessions.
