Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) systems and services are pervasively integrated in education, health care, commerce, government and many other fields. Increasingly administrators and professionals in business, government, education, and health care are required to have a deeper understanding of ICT in order to analyze, plan, develop, implement, use, and manage telecommunications, information resources and technologies.
The Telecommunications and Information Resource Management (TIRM) Graduate Certificate Program provides professionals with updated knowledge, skills and abilities for managing telecommunication networks, services, and other information resources.
The TIRM Program is offered in an accelerated format for working professional and students to gain skills and develop understanding in:
- Information and Communication Technologies (ICT)
- Information Resource Policy, Planning and Management; and
- ICT Development and Services
The curriculum incorporates a comprehensive exploration of the breadth and depth of ICT and information resource policy, planning, technology systems, regulation, and management. The course activities and projects build on participants’ professional background, experiences and ICT related interests. Although the program is not designed to develop highly specialized technical skills, technical professionals benefit from the TIRM Program by expanding their understanding of broader policy, program, and management issues in the field.
