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. 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 six Electrical and Computer Engineering certificates and nine more in a variety of other disciplines. Many courses and certificates can be completed through our E-Learning program.

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