Electronics Materials and Processing Certificate

Engineer for optimum performance.

Michigan Tech’s graduate on-campus and online certificate in Electronic Materials and Processing trains students to respond innovatively to the material needs of contemporary society. Without expertise in electronic materials and processing, many of the things—such as watches, smart phones, aeroplanes, computers, television and radio— that make modern life convenient and efficient would not exist. Even more importantly, future technological innovations are dependent on the ability of professionals to engineer electronic materials to attain structural properties necessary for designing and fabricating products.
