Graduate Certificate - Network Centric Systems
The area of network centric systems has evolved from recent advances in information technology and the increased level of interconnectivity that society has achieved through the Internet and Broadband communication technology. The area of network centric systems has grown due to advances in information technology and increases in connectivity due to the convergence of computing and communications.
Network centric systems are frequently "systems of systems" with complex interfaces and interactions. The graduate certificate in network centric systems is a joint effort between computer engineering and systems engineering to provide practicing engineers with the necessary skills to develop and design the operation of network centric systems. These four courses count towards a M.S. degree in systems engineering or computer engineering and they address the intersection between network engineering, systems engineering, and architecting. The requirements are the successful completion of two core courses and two elective courses from the list below. A grade of "B" or better is required in each course before the student is eligible for the master of science program.
