UC Irvine Extension is offering two online courses in technology subjects tailored to provide professionals with up-to-date skills and information on the current industry trends for engineering and computer professionals.

“The ability to implement advanced user interface concepts, design security measures for critical information infrastructures and organize well-written requirements specification, is necessary in today’s technological environment,” said Dave Dimas, UCI’s director of engineering, sciences and information technology.

In the System Requirements Engineering course participants will learn how to define system requirements based on the initial problem, user needs, operational concepts, requirements and architecture. The course runs from April 2 to May 27.

The Secure Systems course focuses on the design for both trusted computing bases and security measures for critical information infrastructures and is offered April 2 to June 3.

“These new courses will maximize a course participant’s ability to evolve their technical skill sets, master certain topics in their field, and do so in a convenient and informational format,” Dimas said.

UC Irvine Extension also plans to offer free one-hour informational webinars regarding upcoming industry trends. The first two are scheduled for Feb. 27 and 28 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
