The new technological age has placed demands on how to handle, secure and maintain computer and network systems. The Cybersecurity Certificate Program deals with emerging information technologies to troubleshoot networking and security issues within operating systems such as Apple, Android, Windows and more. This certificate program will offer a mixture of general education, professional courses, and technical experiences at local facilities; it prepares students to prevent, detect and battle digital crime with classes that blend technology with critical thinking, forensics and investigative techniques. Upon completion the student will have obtained the knowledge and techniques demanded by the information technology industry. Furthermore, this program prepares students for computer related certificate exams such as CompTIA Security + and/or EC-Council Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator. If I major in Database System Administration, can I transfer to an upper-division college or university? The program is intended as a career-oriented program. Courses completed as part of this Certificate of Completion program can be applied toward associate’s degree programs at ECC. All credits earned in certificate programs that are applied to associates’ degree programs transfer to four-year institutions. See an Engineering Technologies & Computer Sciences (ETCS) division faculty member for more information.
