SUGGESTED PRIOR LEARNING

This course has been developed at an introductory undergraduate level and is designed to build on knowledge acquired in completing the CIP program. Students wishing to take this course who do not have a CIP should have industry experience and may need to make additional efforts in order to get the most from the course. In addition, the course is designed to build on skills and knowledge developed in the other three ACIP courses.
