Certificate Programs in Engineering Management

Graduate students can choose from below graduate certificates in Engineering Management.  Each graduate certificate has four courses to be chosen as follows.  Graduate students who are pursuing a master's degree can also pursue a graduate certificate by taking an additional 6 graduate hours.

Certificate Program in Project and Technology Management

The Project and Value Management Certificate Program emphasizes and provides technical knowledge of project management, value management, and planning tools along with engineering economy, engineering cost accounting, and systems analysis. It includes project-scheduling tools such as PERT/CPM with Microsoft Project, project control, analysis of functional activities, engineering economic evaluation, and project evaluation. It supplements the technical knowledge with issues related to effective leadership and/or accounting systems for cost analysis.

Admission Requirements

Knowledge of engineering economy is required as demonstrated by the satisfactory completion of ENGR 3520, Engineering Economy, or equivalent. Individuals will be admitted to the Certificate in Project and Value Management program if, either:

a. They have a bachelor's degree and significant related professional experience such as project management, cost accounting, and economic evaluation of projects and are approved by the Engineering Management Graduate Committee,

or

b. They meet the admission requirements of the Graduate School as stated in the Graduate Catalog, are admitted to the Engineering or Engineering Management M.S. program, and have satisfied all prerequisite courses assigned by the respective Graduate Committee.
