About

More than 300,000 UNIX® installations worldwide support over a million users. In comparison with other existing operating systems, UNIX offers more flexibility and a greater set of comprehensive services. Its powerful features permit many users to use one system, and the multitasking capacity allows users to perform several processes at the same time. Its support of open systems architecture, and its unique multitasking features, have made UNIX one of the most popular operating systems today.

The Certificate Program in Linux®/UNIX is designed for those currently in the computer industry who want to upgrade their skills, and for those with basic computer literacy who want to enter this fast-growing field. The program curriculum combines theory and practical applications. Students learn skills that are immediately applicable in the workplace as well as C Programming, the language in which most networking software is written.

Many of the courses in the Linux/UNIX certificate program may be used to satisfy requirements in the Information Technology and Data/Telecommunications Certificate Programs, as well as the A.S. or B.S. degrees in Information Technology.

Note: The Linux/UNIX Certificate is available in accelerated and online formats.
