Graduate Certificate in Enterprise Computing

This certificate is in response to an increasing demand from employers in the Twin Cities metro area and beyond who need to fill the growing shortage of skilled professionals in enterprise (mainframe) computing. Corporations in a wide array of industries including banking, healthcare, insurance, government and retail are in great need to hire replacements for their senior mainframe engineers and architects. A graduate certificate in Enterprise Computing is a great way to begin your career as a mainframe professional.

In response to COVID-19, the University of St. Thomas has made prudent decisions to act on the advice of state and medical professionals. For spring 2021, all our classes in our Graduate Programs in Software and Data Science which are normally delivered in an on-campus classroom format, will be delivered live online. Each of our classes meet once a week or every other Saturday. The classes will still be held during their normal time on weeknights and Saturdays. 

We are happy to help you in every way possible on your journey to apply, register, and start classes. Each of our classes meet once a week or every other Saturday.
