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 Information Systems 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 three years. Three of the four courses must be from the Information Systems Engineering program, as listed throughout the Courses section, which include EN.635.xxx courses plus selected courses from the Computer Science (EN.605.xxx), Cybersecurity (EN.695.xxx), Systems Engineering (EN.645.xxx), and Engineering Management (EN.595.xxx) programs. Students are allowed to take one elective. Tracks are not applicable for students pursuing certificates. All course selections, including the elective, are subject to advisor approval.
