Graduate Certificates

The Mechanical Engineering department offers several graduate certificate programs to students meeting the regular admission requirements for the master's program. The programs are tailored for those who wish to improve their current skillset and knowledge or wish to take a different path in their career without committing to a full Master's Degree program. Each graduate certificate program is self-contained and highly focused, carrying 10 or more graduate credits. All of the courses may be used toward the Master of Engineering degree as well as for the graduate certificate. Current programs include:
