Certificate Programs

Working professionals are often interested in gaining more experience, developing sharper skills and increasing their knowledge in a specific area. Graduate certificates allow you to accomplish this in only four or five courses. A certificate may be completed along with a degree program or as an unaccompanied career enhancer. Courses successfully taken as part of a certificate program can also be applied toward a degree in that field if you apply and are accepted into the related master’s program.

Villanova’s College of Engineering offers certificates in 15 different disciplines, and many courses and certificates can be completed through the E-Learning program.

Note that successful completion of the certificate program requires an overall GPA of 3.0 or higher.
