Additive Manufacturing and Design Graduate Credit Certificate Program

Admission Requirements

Applicants apply for admission to the program via the Graduate School application for admission. Requirements listed here are in addition to Graduate Council policies listed under GCAC-300 Admissions Policies. International applicants may be required to satisfy an English proficiency requirement; see GCAC-305 Admission Requirements for International Students for more information.

The admission requirements for the students enrolling in the online AMD Certificate will be based on a combination of academic records, GRE scores, resume and applicable work experience, personal statement of interests, and three letters of recommendation from a previous professor or supervisor who can attest to the applicant’s academic potential. GRE scores will be waived for applicants who have significant work experience (5 years) or completed an existing master’s degree. Applicants will be expected to have a Bachelor of Science or four-year Associate’s degree from an accredited institution in engineering, engineering technology, manufacturing, materials science, or related field. An undergraduate cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better on a 4.0 scale in the final two years of undergraduate studies is required.
