Certificate programs

In addition to its master's and doctoral programs, the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers non-degree Graduate Certificates in Digital Signal Processing, Electric Machines and Drives, Microwaves and Antennas, and Smart Sensor Systems.

Certificate programs in other technical areas can be developed and completed with the aid of an academic adviser, subject to department approval.

The certificate programs are designed for practicing engineers and other qualified individuals with bachelor’s degrees who wish to update and/or expand their knowledge in specific technical areas, but do not necessarily wish to pursue a master’s or doctoral degree.

Each graduate certificate program requires completion of four courses (12 credits) selected from a prescribed list of courses pertinent to the area of study, as indicated below. All courses taken must be approved for graduate credit, and at least two of the courses must be strictly graduate level (6000 or 8000 level courses). Students must complete all courses within a three-year time period and must earn a quality point average of at least 3.0 with no grade below a C.
