Flexibility: Pursue Professional Development

Enhance your current degree by earning a certificate from the comfort of your office or home, viewing lectures at your convenience. Off-campus students enroll in the same classes as on-campus students. Both follow the same syllabus and schedule and, with few exceptions, complete the same course work.

Certificate in Electric Power Engineering

This is a 13 credit program that certifies that a student has taken undergraduate courses covering the fundamentals of electric power systems. All courses are offered on-line except for a one credit lab. The lab is offered once a year to on-line students as an intensive one week course. It is assumed that students attempting the certificate have a basic understanding of calculus and differential equations. For assistance in determining the initial class to take, please contact Dr. Bruce Mork or Dr. Leonard Bohmann.
