In an effort to make high-quality graduate programs available to working professionals, current graduate students and others, Michigan Tech’s College of Engineering is rolling out 16 new graduate certificate programs this week. All are open for enrollment now, for Spring 2021.
“One of our goals at Michigan Tech has been to expand online learning opportunities for engineers, to help them meet new challenges and opportunities with stronger knowledge and skills,” said Janet Callahan, dean of MTU’s College of Engineering. The certificates are offered in four departments: Civil and Environmental Engineering, Mechanical Engineering-Engineering Mechanics, Geological and Mining Engineering and Sciences, and Biomedical Engineering.
“We have many more certificates in the works,” Callahan said. “We expect to have a total of 30 new graduate certificates—including more than 90 courses—by this fall. Students can also sign up for a single course without committing to a certificate.
“Each course offered in Michigan Tech’s online certificate programs is now accessible and flexible to accommodate a busy schedule,” Callahan explained. “These are the same robust courses taken by our doctorate and masters candidates, taught directly by highly regarded faculty, with outstanding opportunities to create connections,” she added. “We invite working professionals to join these courses, and bring their own experiences to bear, as well as their challenges as part of the discussion.”
All courses will be taught online, many of them synchronously offered, with regularly scheduled class meeting times. “Obtaining certification from Michigan Tech in sought-after industry skills is a great way to accelerate and advance a career in technology” said Callahan.
Students take three courses to earn a certificate. “It’s a three-step approach for a deeper dive into the subject area that results in a credential.” Michigan Tech faculty are accessible, offering an open door learning experience for students, notes Callahan.
“Michigan Tech has a strong, collegial learning community, both online and on campus. We’re also known for tenacity. Our faculty and graduates know how to deliver and confidently lean into any challenge.”
Citing Michigan Tech’s stellar reputation, Callahan said “A certificate credential from Michigan Tech will be respected across many industries, particularly in the manufacturing sectors of the Midwest—and around the world. Michigan Tech engineering alumni are working in leadership positions across the United States and in 88 different countries.”
