In the ACEDD department's efforts to better align our pathways with specific employment opportunities, we identified a variety of associated courses and brought these to our most recent Industry Advisory meetings. The intent of these efforts and the proposed coursework was discussed and enthusiastically approved. Additional discussion was held between the industry professionals who are part of our instructional faculty with direct knowledge and experience of the needs of industry as related to students with specific coursework completed. Such discussions allowed us to identify the specific group of courses applicable to this proposed Certificate.
