Graduate Certificates

The School of Engineering is now offering 13 graduate certificate programs through The Citadel Graduate College.

Below you will find a brief description of the certificate options:

Graduate Certificate in Aeronautical Engineering:

The study of research, design, development, testing, and science of aircraft systems. Students will need to complete four prescribed courses totaling 12 credit hours.

Graduate Certificate in Built Environment and Public Health:

Graduate certificate candidates in Built Environment and Public Health must complete at least two courses from those offered at The Citadel in Civil and Environmental Engineering including Public Health, Physical Activity, and Design of the Built Environment, which is a required course. The remaining two courses may be selected from a list of approved program electives either from The Citadel or other participating graduate institutions.

The study of materials is concerned with the discovery and design of new materials. New composite materials are essential to creating advanced technologies and making current technologies stronger, smaller, or lighter. Students will need to complete four prescribed courses totaling 12 credit hours.

Graduate Certificate in Composites:

The study of materials is concerned with the discovery and design of new materials. New composite materials are essential to creating advanced technologies and making current technologies stronger, smaller, or lighter. Students will need to complete four prescribed courses totaling 12 credit hours.

Graduate Certificate in Computer Engineering:

The Graduate Certificate in Computer Engineering program is designed for students seeking advanced engineering techniques and professional development skills in the field of computer engineering.

Graduate Certificate in Geotechnical Engineering:

Soil mechanics, soil sampling and testing, shallow and deep foundations, and retaining wall design. Students will need to complete four prescribed courses totaling 12 credit hours.

Graduate Certificate in Manufacturing:

The study of manufacturing deals with the processes, equipment, and tools used to turn raw materials into a new product. Students will need to complete four prescribed courses totaling 12 credit hours.

Graduate Certificate in Mechatronics:

Mechatronics is the crossroads in engineering where mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, computer science, and controls engineering meet to create new and exciting real world systems. Students will need to complete four prescribed courses totaling 12 credit hours.

Graduate Certificate in Power & Energy:

The study of power and energy will give students the tools to create, improve, and maintain technologies that power the modern world. Students will need to complete four prescribed courses totaling in 12 credit hours.

Graduate Certificate in Structural Engineering:

Mechanics of materials, structural engineering systems, reinforced concrete design, and steel design. Students will need to complete four prescribed courses totaling in 12 credit hours.

Graduate Certificate in Systems Engineering Management:

For engineers and non-engineers, the Systems Engineering Management (SEM) course of instruction has application to a broad spectrum of industries, including manufacturing, medicine, hospitality, software, hardware, and transportation. This program is specifically designed for industry professionals who manage projects and programs that take customer requirements and produce a product designed to meet specified needs. To provide a broad knowledge base, the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) Handbook is used as a primary textbook, along with other references on the engineering of complex systems.

Graduate Certificate in Technical Program Management:

Technical Program Management (TPgM) courses educate and prepare technical professionals to serve as program and portfolio managers or leaders. As they are promoted in their jobs, they also need specific knowledge of the management of multiple technical projects and programs. This certificate is well suited to support workforce development for working professionals employed in the military, manufacturing, Defense Contracting, Information Technology, and other complex industries.

Graduate Certificate in Technical Project Management:

The Technical Project Management (TPM) program is a series of four graduate courses specifically developed to comprehensibly broaden the knowledge, skills, and abilities of working professionals. Taught in a graduate college setting, the PMIĀ® Guidebook to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOKĀ®), an ANSI standard, serves as a textbook and primary template for competency development. The TPM program is designed to be the career and professional development that junior and mid-level professionals need in advancing their careers.

Graduate Certificate in Transportation Engineering:

Transportation policy, safety, facility design, traffic operations, travel demand and road desing. Students will need to complete four prescribed coruses totaling in 12 credit hours.


Please note that courses for the certificates in civil, electrical and mechanical engineering (new in 2016) will be rolled out based on demand.  Apply now to inform demand.
