Engineering Studies

The certificate program is typically appropriate for those students who are seeking a very specific set of skills. This may be a young student preparing for other schooling or a professional who wants to make a career change. The program usually takes up to a year from beginning to end.

What is a Certificate in Engineering Studies? The certificate program provides the student with a chance to progress beyond the traditional curriculum. Upon completion, the graduate has developed the specific skills needed to work as an engineer. Certificates provide graduates with access to job positions where the candidates must display very specific competencies. Courses may include project management for engineers or a variety of engineering electives.

After completing the program, graduates are often able to work effectively in a variety of engineering roles. The graduates are prepared to obtain desirable positions in engineering firms or to continue on with their education. The fast pace of the certificate program can save students a lot of time when there is a need for the program to be completed quickly.

The cost of attendance in a certificate program can be very different from one school to another. The tuition and fees can vary widely, especially across international borders. Prospective students should contact the schools of their choice for the specific information they need.

There are many different careers in the engineering industry. Graduates may pursue job positions as machinists or as engineers in a government agency. Some graduates look for jobs as project managers, as technical advisors, as engineers or as business leaders. There are different focus areas available, appropriate for the differing goals held by the students.

Vehicle Acoustics - NVH

RWTH International Academy / RWTH Aachen University
Campus Full time 5 days October 2018 Germany Aachen

Professional Education Programme giving extensive insight into the topic of vehicle acoustics. [+]

The subject area of acoustics (noise, vibration, harshness) is very important for the development of vehicles. Reasons are, on the one hand, predetermined exterior noise levels issued by the legislator for vehicle registration. Now that the respecitive guidelines have undergone revision, further reductions are pending. On the other hand, vehicle buyers and owners also display growing demands in terms of vibration and sound comfort. Measuring up to these demands is further impeded by conflicting aims between acoustics and other criteria like the reduction of both CO2 and fuel consumption (efficient engines, downsizing, downspeeding, lightweight construction). Apart from that, the acoustician is faced with entirely different challenges in terms of electric and hybrid vehicles. In order to find solutions for these tasks, acousticians require an informed understanding of the entire vehicle system which will only be achieved by means of considerable efforts by the vehicle manufacturers and the supplier industry. This course is designed for engineers and technicians from the vehicle and supplier industry who want to learn from one of the most experienced specialists in five intensive course days. [-]
