Engineering Graduate Certificates

Our stackable credentials help you strengthen your résumé with graduate certificates, recognizing the new skills and knowledge you’ve gained while pursuing your master’s degree. You can earn one or more graduate certificates while working toward your degree. Whether you apply to the master's program first, or start with a certificate, you'll only need to pay one application fee for credentials that fall in the same stack.  Please note: You must apply and be accepted to each program individually.

Certificate earners are awarded a digital badge for each certificate they complete. Badges can be digitally displayed anywhere to recognize attaining a new level of knowledge. Courses are offered in convenient, seven-week sessions, which are available in several delivery modes: in-person, hybrid, or online.
