Abstract

Our iCAN program is the first of its kind in the state of Illinois from a large public university. Our graduate certificate in computing fundamentals provides a high-quality credential from a leading computer science department. Graduates of our program are prepared to pursue tech careers in industry or pursue a full graduate degree in computer science. Thus, our program brings together non-computing college graduates from diverse areas of expertise and backgrounds in an accelerated graduate certificate program that broadens participation in computing.
