Engineering Studies

A certificate is a document that indicates mastery of a particular skill or discipline. Because certificate programs vary broadly in terms of content and length, strong variation is to be expected from one certificate program to the next.

Engineering is the process of designing, inventing, building and maintaining machines, structures, tools and other things that are a part of daily life. This is done by combining knowledge of empirical evidence, mathematics and global awareness.

 

From indigenous civilizations to modern day empires, North America has plenty of hands-on educational opportunities to offer scholars. Filled with a range of distinct cultures, students can educate themselves in well-rounded way.
