Computer Programming

There is an increasing need for information systems specialists in the New York Metropolitan area; articles about the shortage of qualified individuals appear regularly. This certificate program will enable interested students to either explore the field of information systems before committing to a master's degree or to incorporate information systems principles into their current line of work.



Students with little or no computer experience or with a deficiency in mathematics will be advised to take a preparatory course. All students intending to enter the program are required to contact the Department of Computer Science for advisement.
