Computer Forensics Program Description
The proposed Post-Baccalaureate Certificate (P.B.C.) in Computer Forensics provides more options for Applied Information Technology (AIT) students to focus on the most relevant and timely topics in the field, as in the case of all existing Applied Information Technology certificates. The certificate will draw from the existing the M.S. in Applied Information Technology program to prepare effective, ethical leaders and engaged citizens by providing them the specialized instruction in the computer/digital forensics field to foster intellectual inquiry, critical thinking, creativity, and adaptability to craft solutions that will enrich their workplaces and will address public/societal needs. The target audience in this program includes existing students in the AIT program who wish to gain domain knowledge in computer forensics and working professionals in the computer security industry who are interested in broadening their career options.&nbsp; <br>
