Program Credits

Mainframe computers continue to be the platform of choice for large corporations, and demand for qualified professionals is increasing. The enterprise systems certificate program is open to any student with a college degree regardless of computing experience, and provides hands-on training using an IBM mainframe computer.

Available in both traditional and online format, the program can be completed in one year as a standalone certificate. Because each of the program’s five 3-credit courses carries graduate credit, they also can be applied towards an RMU master’s degree program in computer and information systems.

Undergraduate Certificate: 18 credits

Graduate Certificate: 15 credits
