The Advanced Certificate in Applied Digital Forensic Science is designed for working professionals who are trained in computer science and who wish to develop knowledge and skills in digital forensics without committing to a full graduate degree program. The curriculum links theory to practice through ample hands-on work. Current D4CS master's students may pursue the advanced certificate as part of their degree program.
The program consists of the following four 3-credit graduate courses plus a practical examination.
FCM 710 Architecture and Vulnerabilities of Secure Operating Systems
FCM 742 Network Security
FCM 745 Network Forensics
FCM 760 Forensic Management of Digital Evidence
Upon satisfactory completion of the coursework students take the Applied Digital Forensic Science Certification Exam.
