Certificate in Computer Science for Digital Forensics Program


The Computer Science for Digital Forensics Certificate Program (CSI Bridge) allows candidates to gain the academic background needed to study digital forensics based on computer science and quality for entry to the Master of Science in Forensic Computing degree program.

The Certificate program entails four courses offered at the graduate level. The first two are intensive semester long foundation courses that provide a survey of core computer science tailored for digital forensics. One foundation course considers operating systems, computer architecture and networks while the other covers programming and math essentials.

The two foundation courses are followed by two core courses in the master’s degree program. Students who complete these four courses with grades of B or better receive a Certificate and may apply for transfer to the master’s degree program in Forensic Computing.

The courses are as follows:

Forensic Computing 708 Foundations for Digital Forensics and Security I*
Forensic Computing 709 Foundations for Digital Forensics and Security II* 
Forensic Computing 710 Architecture of Secure Operating Systems 
Forensic Computing 742 Network Security
