Brief Overview

The Cyber Warfare Certificate addresses the network threat environment, network infrastructure, network design and security for both wired and wireless environments as well as all facets of computer network operations, depending on the choice of certificate electives. The coursework equips students with an ability to apply techniques for network operations with both wired and wireless computer networks based on an ability to analyze, design and evaluate networks. Electives can be chosen to satisfy requirements for workforce education in both the DoD and Intelligence Community. Non-DoD sectors of government and the private sector which traditionally focus on network defense may also wish to consider this certificate to provide their employees with a more insightful understanding of computer and network defense challenges.

A minimum of 12 credit hours must be completed.
