Certificate in Applied Computer Science

Offered at IUPUI by School of Science.


The undergraduate certificate in Applied Computer Science is a Purdue University certificate offered in the Department of Computer and Information Sciences.

The certificate program introduces computer science principles, develops practical skills in market-driven software applications, and prepares students to be successful with emerging technologies. You'll learn to solve complex problems, design and implement algorithms, apply computer science theory to practical problems, adapt to technological change, and to program in at least two languages.

This certificate supplements an undergraduate degree in a field outside of computer science. This allows students to gain significant experience with today's technologies, as well as the background to understand and to contribute to the creation of new technologies.

With this certificate, you'll be prepared for jobs such as database management, web development, multimedia, system administration, or user support.

The certificate can be completed entirely online.
