Graduate Certificate in Peace Engineering

Drexel University’s online Graduate Certificate in Peace Engineering is a groundbreaking program providing a unique opportunity to study at the intersection of STEM and conflict management.

The 3-course, 9-credit Peace Engineering Certificate introduces you to the field while training you to develop systems-level analysis skills. It features a highly-focused curriculum, developed in collaboration with the U.S. Institute of Peace and the PeaceTech Lab.

The study plan will help you learn critical ways to prevent and reduce conflict. These methods integrate innovative technologies, engineering approaches, policies, and practices of peacebuilders.

Apart from technical competencies, the program will help you understand the human dimensions of conflict. For instance, how working in a conflict zone links with science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

As a graduate of the program, you will leave with a toolbox of transferrable skills that will enable you to succeed in peacebuilding and leadership. This makes it an ideal option for FEMA, Army Corps of Engineers, and many other professionals:

  • Peacebuilding practitioners who work on issues related to engineering, technology, and infrastructure
  • Government and military officers responsible for reconstruction and peacebuilding post-conflict
  • Engineers engaged in reconstruction or development work in conflict regions, or where natural resource extraction may lead to conflict
