Applicants who are interested in taking graduate-level courses but not necessarily interested in pursuing a full master’s degree are eligible for the Graduate Certificate in Electrical and Computer Engineering. Applicants are required to meet the same requirements for admission as the master’s degree.
If the student should decide to pursue the full master’s degree, all courses will apply to the master’s degree provided they meet program requirements and fall within a five-year time limit. The student must declare their intention prior to completing the certificate.
Four courses must be completed within five years. At least three of the four courses must be from the Electrical and Computer Engineering (EN.525.xxx) program or the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (EN.520.xxx) in the full-time program. Students are allowed to take one elective. Only grades of B– or above can count toward the graduate certificate. All course selections outside of Electrical and Computer Engineering program requirements are subject to advisor approval.
