CSCI 102 - Computer Mediated Communications

Ryan McHenry -- Data Analyst, Microsoft

The Web Management ISC certificate provided me useful and marketable skills in both the university and business worlds. During my attendance at Western, I was able to concurrently learn the skills being taught in the ISC program and apply those skills to the job I had at the Outdoor Center. Those skills also separated me from the competition when interviewing for jobs after graduating, making me a more desirable candidate. The variety of topics covered provided me the programming and SQL foundation required to succeed in today’s technology market. I would recommend the Web Management Certificate because of the exciting nature of the topics covered and the invaluable, industry applicable skills that provide an edge against the competition.
