The Certification of Professional Achievement in Telecommunications 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.

"I have been quite happy with ALL of the classes I have taken. This has not been easy - as some of the classes have been challenging. Also, with the unpredictable nature of my travel schedule, the logistics, at times, have been even more of a problem. But, in the end, there has been good cooperation at all levels and things have worked out well in the end. In conclusion, I thought my travel schedule would prohibit me from being able to successfully complete any advanced degree. This has not proven to be the case."
Bob Havrin, Baker Process
