These certificates have 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. We offer two certificates:
The program has completed its initial pilot phase. Regular classes began in October 1998.
Because the NSC classes are asynchronous, it is practical to start at any time.
- 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.
- The Network Engineering Certificate - Requires successful completion of both Computer-Based Technology Training from
Learning Tree International and the Network Engineering Practicum conducted by GMU and Learning Tree.
