Graduate Certificate in Engineering Management

The Graduate Certificate in Engineering Management is offered as a professional credential to students who successfully complete four graduate-level courses from the MS in Engineering Management curriculum: Engineering Management I, Communications, Economics for Engineering Management, and Financial Management I. This Certificate program is a valuable professional resource for engineers and scientists who want in-depth exposure to the skills and knowledge needed for management positions.
