The Certification of Professional Achievement in Networking and Systems is ideal for students who want to deepen their fundamental knowledge at the graduate level by completing 4 specified courses in the Computer Science and Electrical Engineering Department.

Online learning, CVN included, requires tremendous diligence on the part of the student - but only with CVN could I get an Masters in engineering from an Ivy League school while working full-time on the West Coast.
