Graduate School Certificate Programs
Graduate certificates can be obtained concurrently with a graduate degree or can be obtained by students who have completed an undergraduate degree.
- Current Michigan Tech graduate students who are in a degree program do not need to formally apply.
- Non-degree seeking students interested in obtaining a graduate certificate must apply to the certificate program using the online application - the number of credits earned prior to admission that can be counted are restricted.
- International Students must apply and be accepted into a degree granting program in order to earn a graduate certificate.
- Advanced Electric Power Engineering
The Graduate Certificate in Advanced Electric Power Engineering program provides the student with advanced knowledge of the operation and design of electric power systems.
- Data Science
The Data Science Graduate Certificate program provides students with strong academic training in data analysis, including aspects of predictive modeling and data mining. The skills developed are broadly applicable, and being interdisciplinary in nature, this Data Science certificate can enhance backgrounds in many disciplines.
- Hybrid Electric Drive Vehicle Engineering
The Graduate Certificate in Hybrid Electric Drive Vehicle Engineering program provides the student with advanced knowledge of the design, calibration, and operating characteristics of electric drive and hybrid electric vehicles.
- International Profile
The International Profile Graduate Certificate program provides the student with a substantial international perspective that demonstrates an ability to bridge cultural and language barriers and collaborate effectively.
The Graduate Certificate in Nanotechnology recognizes advanced study of scientific, technological, and engineering topics in nanotechnology, including aspects of (i) characterization, (ii) micro- to nano-scale fabrication and control, and (iii) devices, systems and integration. The certificate also requires study of the societal and ethical implications of emerging technologies.
- Post-Secondary STEM Education
The Post-Secondary STEM Education Graduate Certificate is designed to develop high-level skills related to the assessment, development, and delivery of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) instruction at university or community college settings.
The Certificate in Sustainability formally recognizes curricular breadth in the following areas: i) policy, societal, and economic systems, ii) environmental systems, and iii) industrial systems. The student has the opportunity to achieve specialized education in engineering, forestry, science, social sciences, humanities, business, and economics.
- Sustainable Water Resources Systems
The Graduate Certificate in Sustainable Water Resources Systems will be useful to students in such fields as natural resource management, business and policy, environmental and civil engineering, geology and geological engineering, and environmental policy.
