The 24-credit Certificate in Advanced Study (CAS) provides a personalized program of studies beyond the Master of Science in Telecommunications degree. This program is ideal for those who wish to explore a specific field of interest or to update skills and competencies without pursuing a PhD. 

In this quickly evolving field, it is critical for professionals to gain knowledge of leading-edge topics and to update their skills to reflect the latest in technology and research. Our CAS will keep your skills current. 


Candidates for the Telecommunications certificate must complete the following requirements:

  • A total of 24 credits in graduate-level courses acceptable to the advisor and passed with a grade point average of at least B (3.0 on a 4.0 scale)
  • 15 of the 24 credits must be taken from among the approved courses for the MST degree program.

Coursework must be completed within a period of four calendar years from the student’s initial registration in the certificate program.
