Automotive Systems and Controls Certificate

The Graduate Certificate in Automotive Systems and Controls (ASC) is an interdisciplinary certificate with courses from the Departments of Mechanical Engineering-Engineering Mechanics and Electrical and Computer Engineering. Students completing this certificate will develop competencies in controls, systems engineering, and systems integration, encompassing multiple aspects of mechanical and electrical engineering with a primary focus on automotive applications. 

What are the advantages of a Graduate Certificate in Automotive Systems and Controls from Michigan Tech? Our program is different, because we go beyond powertrains to look at total vehicle systems, from chassis to human interface:

  • Learn to develop and apply engineering design, analysis, and controls to a complex system, incorporating numerous embedded systems controlling a dynamic system
  • Deepen your systems integration knowledge, including requirements, design, technical, safety, and economic analysis for mobility systems
  • Enhance your interdisciplinary skills to approach complex systems effectively

Both degree-seeking students enrolled in the Graduate School at Michigan Technological University, as well as non-degree seeking students either on or off campus (including those who are already engineers) may earn this certificate or take courses toward it. This certificate requires a minimum total of 15 credits.
