Graduate Badges

What is a Badge?

The School of Computing now offers three graduate-level digital badges. A digital badge, or simply "badge", recognizes a student’s completion of a coherent and meaningful academic experience. A badge allows students to promote academic achievements online more effectively and in different venues than would be possible with a transcript. For example, you could link your digital badge to your LinkedIn profile. The university uses to issue badges. Click here to see an example.
