Engineer for Optimum Performance

The electronic industry has seen an exponential growth in recent years. Without an on-campus or online certificate 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.

Who is This Certificate For?

This certificate is for qualified professionals who want to enhance their skill set and can be a foundation to continue toward a graduate degree. It is also valuable for degree-seeking students looking to develop a concentration that gives them an edge in their career path.

What You Need to Know

The graduate certificate in electronic materials and processing trains students to respond innovatively to the material needs of contemporary society. Besides training in the composition and properties of various electronic and electro-mechanical materials, students understand how materials could be processed for optimum functionality especially in computer engineering or sensor design applications. Students gain the skills for industrial work or continuous postgraduate education and acquire skills that are easily transferable to other fields in the engineering sciences and beyond.


To enroll in this certificate program, students must have a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering or closely related technical field. Students with degrees in other fields may be required to take preparatory courses. See complete admissions requirements.
