Students who have graduated from a master’s program may pursue a certificate in Telecommunications.
In consultation with an advisor, students project a Plan of Studies to meet their specific interests or needs, and these plans may change as the program proceeds. Students may select graduate-level courses in other departments within the University as well as at Pittsburgh Council on Higher Education-cooperating institutions. Admission to all courses is contingent upon meeting course prerequisites and is subject to the advisor’s approval.
Candidates for the Telecommunications certificate must complete the following requirements:
- A total of 24 credits in graduate-level courses acceptable to the advisor and passed with a grade point average of at least B (3.00 on a 4.00 scale)
- Fifteen of the 24 credits must be taken from among the approved courses for the MST degree program.
Course work must be completed within a period of four calendar years from the student’s initial registration in the certificate program.
