Networking Fundamentals graduate badge

The School of Computing now offers graduate-level digital badges. A digital badge, or simply "badge," recognizes your completion of a coherent and meaningful academic experience. A badge allows you to promote academic achievements online more effectively and in different venues than with a transcript.

Program Overview

The School of Computing's networking fundamentals badge is not a degree or certificate. Completion of a bachelor's degree, and evidence of some programming skill is required for admission.

The badge covers the basic principles of wireless and wired networks, providing an introduction to networking protocols, protocol stacks, and specifically the TCP/IP suite of protocols. Students earning the badge will understand how the internet protocols (TCP/IP) permit communication between computers.
