Computer systems based on the UNIX operating system are used increasingly in business and industry as network, database, web and email servers and as high-end workstations. The UNIX operating system runs on a wide variety of computer architectures--from PCs to mainframes and UNIX system administration is relatively complex compared to administration of single-user systems such as Windows and MacOS workstations.
This certificate program will introduce concepts and details to understand the Unix-based system software and hardware components and system services. It will give hands-on experience installing, configuring, running, and maintaining a UNIX system, and implement security and safety. It is suitable for persons who currently administer UNIX systems and/or who wish to gain additional knowledge and experience to equip themselves to keep up with complex UNIX system administration tasks.
The goal of this certificate program is to provide working computer professionals as well as hobbyists with the knowledge and hands-on experience necessary to administer a UNIX system in a networked environment.
A certificate will be granted to those participants who have successfully completed the required course work and who can:
|CSCI 145||Computer Science I||5 cr|
|Demonstrated programming fluency.|
|CSCI 275||UNIX Concepts and Tools||2 cr|
|CSCI 375||UNIX System Administration||3 cr|
Complete course descriptions and further details on the certificate can be found in the Computer Science section of the UW-Parkside catalog.
