A student admitted into the Engineering College graduate program may choose to complete a four-course certificate program in one or all of the following subject areas:
Although many Chemical Engineering graduate students choose one of these areas of concentration during their graduate studies, it is not necessary to complete a certificate program as part of the graduate degree in Chemical Engineering. It is also not necessary to complete the graduate degree in Chemical Engineering to receive a certificate. Some students choose only to complete the four courses required for a particular certificate and not pursue the Master's degree. In either case, a graduate student who completes the four courses in a certificate program with an overall GPA of 3.0 or higher in those courses will receive a certificate indicating the successful completion of the certificate program.
