ITEM 1. DB Certificate Changes
Status: CC: passed ; DCSC: passed 9/27/2007
Date: CC Meeting Sept. 2007
Consider change to db certificate in CE (Raj would
like this done before the next dept. meeting).
Students taking the existing db certificate have expressed concerns:
Raj and John Fraser (Prog. Director Eng/Sci/Arch programs of CE) had
several meetings with faculty and Industry advisors and they made
changes to the program to make it more accessible:
Too many prerequisites (in effect 10 courses are required)
- Takes too long to complete it.
- Not all courses are offered since we do not get the min. numbers
to run them.
Six courses to complete the certificate (this is the Industry
standard and the requirement on other certificates).
new: ccps109, ccps209, ccps393, ccps305, ccps510, ccps610
old: ccps109, ccps209 as prerequisites to the program
required: ccps305, ccps510, ccps610, citm305, ckcs425
electives (select 2): ckcs625, ckcs640,ckcs645
Made several courses overlap with Computer Applications Cert.
in order to get the critical mass to run these courses.
Provided the option of attaining an "advanced" certificate
by taking two extra courses from:
ckcs425, ckcs625, ckcs640, ckcs645
Result: passed by CC, and subsequently passed by DCSC.
