Mechanical Engineering

Enrolling in a certificate program at a college or university can help further or begin your career. Taking less time than a traditional degree, a certificate program exposes students to college level coursework in a condensed amount of time. Some students choose to get a certificate after earning a college degree, adding to their skills.

What is a certificate in mechanical engineering? Mechanical engineering is the design and operation of machines. Within this type of engineering, parts are analyzed to create more efficient and safer systems for manufacturing. A certificate program can offer specialized classes in this field. Some courses that may be taken for this program could be mathematics, computer applications, materials, modeling, production design, composites and mechanics. Sometimes there are further concentrations within a certificate program. Some possible specializations are robotics, computer-aided design, thermodynamics, hydraulics or product design. 

Once a certificate in mechanical engineering is awarded, different career options may open up. Additionally, certificate holders have a deeper understanding of the way machines and mechanical systems work.

Depending on the location and program requirements of a certificate program, the costs could range from affordable to expensive. The length of a program also influences the final price paid.

For those who have finished a certificate in this type of engineering, job opportunities may be more abundant. One type of position that could be an option is robotics designer, which involves creating machines for automated processes. Additionally, careers in structural analysis, which has to do with analyzing systems failures, can be obtained with credentials in mechanical engineering. Other possible career paths are working in drafting, thermodynamics in energy or working in mechanics of various industries. Jobs in mechanical engineering are found primarily in the private manufacturing industry, but there are also opportunities in governmental agencies.

Online classes in mechanical engineering are available once you enroll in a course of study. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
