Graduate Certificate Programs

Graduate Certificates are organized for practicing engineers, applied scientists, and managers to keep abreast of the newest techniques and their applications in selected disciplines. Most Graduate Certificates consist of 4 graduate courses often of an applied nature, and the information and understanding gained in the courses can be immediately applied to the solution of on-the-job problems. One course taken at another institution may be transferred to the graduate certificate with faculty approval. A grade of “B” (3.0 GPA) or higher is required for such a course, and it may not have been already used to obtain an academic degree.

A Graduate Certificate is awarded upon satisfactory completion (i.e. a 3.0 GPA in the courses of the program not including a transferred course) of the graduate courses required for the program. In most instances, these courses may be applied towards a graduate degree.
