The Computer Science for Digital Forensics Advanced Certificate Program (CSIBridge) is designed for college graduates who have experience in computing or the information technology field but who lack adequate background in fundamental areas of computer science typically covered in undergraduate programs, including computer programming, networking and algorithms. The program consists of four graduate-level courses intended to provide the essential background needed to study digital forensic science and computer security at a highly technical level. Those who have no experience in computing or information technology should consider pursuing a second undergraduate degree program in computer science before applying to the D4CS master’s program.
Students who complete these four courses with grades of B or better receive a New York State certificate and may apply for transfer to the master’s degree program in Digital Forensics and Cybersecurity.
The advaced certificate program consists of the following four 3-credit courses:
FCM 708 Foundations for Digital Forensics and Security I*
FCM 709 Foundations for Digital Forensics and Security II*
FCM 710 Architecture of Secure Operating Systems
FCM 742 Network Security
