The goal of this graduate certificate program is to prepare students to apply systems engineering principles across the product development or acquisition lifecycle. To be awarded the Graduate Certificate in Systems Engineering, students must successfully complete 12 credits of course work. All courses must be completed with a grade of C or better and a grade-point average of 3.0 to be awarded the certificate.
Applicants must hold either (1) a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited U.S. institution or (2) a tertiary (postsecondary) degree that is deemed comparable to a four-year bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited U.S. institution. This degree must be from an officially recognized degree-granting institution in the country in which it operates. The successful applicant will possess a degree in science or engineering or a closely aligned field and is generally expected to have a minimum combined junior/senior grade-point average of 3.0 (B) on a 4.0 scale.
