Admission Requirements

  • You must meet the general admission requirements that pertain to all graduate certificate candidates.
  • Your prior education must include a degree in a science or an engineering field.
  • In addition to this requirement, a minimum of two years of relevant full-time work experience in the field is required, following the award of an undergraduate degree (note that internship and/or co-op periods do not satisfy this requirement).
    • A detailed work résumé must be submitted.
    • Transcripts from all college studies must be submitted.
  • Admitted students typically have earned a grade point average of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale (B or above) in the latter half of their undergraduate studies.
  • Significant relevant work experience or a graduate degree in a relevant technical discipline may be considered in lieu of meeting the GPA requirement.  If the student should decide to pursue the full master’s degree, all courses will apply to the master’s degree provided they meet program requirements and fall within a five-year time limit.
  • If you are an international student, you may have additional admission requirements.
