Minimum Total Hours: 12

Program Code: G317

The Graduate Certificate in Digital Technologies is intended to impart critical information technology and development skills to individuals with no formal training in Management of Information Technology. The graduate certificate will provide an educational opportunity for those with a specific interest in the core MIT coursework, but do not wish to complete the full MS in MIT. Further, it can serve as a focus for students matriculating in business or non-­business graduate degree programs that would benefit from a facility with information technology and using IT to solve problems and make decisions.  A total of 12 hours is required for the certificate.
