Top Graduate Certificate Programs in Engineering Studies

A graduate certificate is a way for students to advance education in their field of choice after an undergraduate degree. Shorter in length than a conventional graduate degree, these programs still offer graduate-level courses and practical work.

What is a graduate certificate in engineering studies? This program is generally aimed at engineering students with a bachelor’s degree and provides a pathway towards professional work and further education. The courses chosen can cover any engineering field of study, usually selected to allow students to engage with a field outside their major to promote a broader skill set and widen academic and career options.

Students who take a graduate certificate in engineering studies can build a stronger foundation for their engineering expertise and professional background. Along with exploring a new engineering field apart from their prior major, they may also round out crucial skills in research and analysis skills, as well as decision-making and problem-solving strategies.

The process of obtaining a graduate certificate in engineering studies can vary between schools, and the costs and duration of the program vary accordingly. Prospective applicants benefit from research into possible programs.

A graduate certificate in engineering studies can potentially prepare students for a career in any sort of engineering field. A particular focus on manufacturing and design can push engineers with this certificate towards roles in industry and fabrication, including manager positions. Conversely, many students move from this program to pursue a master’s degree — and possibly eventually a doctorate — with the goal being a career as a professor or researcher in academia. The possible end points vary greatly depending on the student’s chosen studies.

The breadth and applicability of engineering fields ensure that students can pursue a graduate certificate in engineering studies at various schools worldwide, including online options. To start, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
