2019-2020 Graduate Bulletin

Computer Science for Digital Forensics (CSIBridge), Advanced Certificate

Program Coordinator: Professor Douglas Salane

The CSIBridge computer science preparatory program entails four courses (12 credits) offered at the graduate level. The first two are intensive, semester-long foundations courses that provide a survey of core computer science tailored to digital forensics. One foundations course considers operating systems, computer architecture and networks while the other covers programming and math essentials. The two foundations courses are followed by two developmental core courses in the degree program. Students who complete these four courses with grades of B or better transfer to the degree program and may receive a CSIBridge certificate.
