Students receive a completion certificate from Carnegie Mellon University's Institute for Software Research (CMU-ISR) for each course in the series that is successfully completed.
CMU-ISR also awards the professional certification in Professional Architectures to students who successfully complete both courses in the series.
This two-part series is targeted at practicing professionals who design, develop, and/or manage the construction of software-intensive systems. These courses provide an in-depth look at architecture design and provide insight on the latest thinking in architecture design. Participants should have prior experience in the development of software-intensive systems and some familiarity with modern software engineering concepts.
