The Graduate Certificate in Mechanical Engineering
is designed to provide a vehicle for the career enhancement of practicing engineers and serve the needs of recent B.S. graduates and graduate students in other programs.
The applicants for the Graduate Certificate in Mechanical Engineering must have a B.S. degree in engineering or a closely-related field from an accredited program, and have a GPA of a least 3.0 in the last two years of undergraduate studies, or a GPA of at least 2.5 in conjunction with significant related work experience.
A total of 18 credit hours (6 three-credit courses) must be completed with a GPA of 3.0 or better (GPA 3.0 UGRAD / 2.5 with work experience) to receive the Graduate Certificate in Mechanical Engineering. Two courses (six-credits) are core courses and must be taken by all students. The remaining twelve credits may be selected from one of the two concentration areas.
