Return to Academic Programs Return to: Academic Programs


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.

For plans of study and program requirements, visit the SIS Intranet.
