This fall, New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) will offer to companies and government agencies a practical, hands-on and sophisticated six-course (18-credit) certificate program designed to combat digital and physical terrorism. Classes may be available at the workplace or through distance learning.

Thanks to a streamlined application and admission process, the educational experience may begin immediately. Contact Statica at 973-596-5486 for details.
