Online Certificate Program

The ETM graduate certificate program allows students to complete shorter professional blocks of coursework relevant to their specific needs. Rather than completing all the course requirements for an ETM master’s degree, students may take four courses (12-credit hours) in specialized areas. A certificate is awarded upon completion of these courses. Course credits earned for a certificate may also apply to a master’s degree in the ETM program or other graduate degree programs. A student may earn more than one certificate and may work on the certificate and master’s program concurrently.

Specialized Certificate Areas

Seven graduate certificates are available in the Engineering and Technology Management program.
