Graduate Certificate in Advanced Electric Power Engineering
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers the Graduate Certificate in Advanced Electric Power Engineering. The program provides the student with advanced knowledge of the operation and design of electric power systems.
The US electric energy industry is facing a shortage of engineering talent. To correct this problem, employers have become more aggressive in hiring graduating engineers and have become interested in retraining existing engineering staff. They recognize their need for highly trained staff in order to handle their research and development needs as well as the application of new technology.
This certificate program is designed, in consultation with electric utilities, to address these educational needs.
Students may apply the credits earned for this certificate toward a graduate degree at Michigan Tech.
All of the lecture courses will be offered online to accommodate engineers’ work schedules.
