Many of the core courses in the Master’s and Bachelor’s degree program parallel the knowledge requirements for EC-Council certifications. Once a student has completed and passed the corresponding ECCU course, then they are eligible to test for the EC-Council certification. Students must pass the test to achieve the certification. Receiving a passing grade in the ECCU course does NOT guarantee a student will pass the certification exam.

At ECCU, students have the unique ability to take the certification exam as it is embedded into the program. This allows the student to receive both the academic component of the course as well as obtain the industry readiness requirement before landing themselves on to a job through the certification.

This bundling of the degree and industry certification is a unique offering only at ECCU!
