What will I learn?

A graduate certificate offers the working professional recognition of a coherent program of advanced study at the graduate level.

The certificate in Acoustics includes courses in the fundamentals of acoustics, random signals and systems, and underwater acoustics.

The Electrical & Computer Engineering Department's certificate programs are compatible with master's degree requirements, enabling you to transition to a degree program without loss of credits. Each certificate meets a subset of the degree requirements for the MS in either electrical engineering or computer engineering.

Prospective students can take up to 2 courses for the certificate before completing their official acceptance to the certificate program, with permission of the instructor. It is possible for acceptance to be offered with a contingency that the student must also take one or more undergraduate prerequisite courses.

Each certificate requires 15 credits of graduate course work. You may complete multiple certificates, provided your application has been approved, and you satisfy the requirements of each program.
