Graduate Certificate Programs

Applicants interested in earning a Certificate in Software Engineering and those interested in taking selected courses from the Software Engineering curriculum may be admitted on a non-matriculating basis to the School of Engineering as special-status students. Non-matriculated students must have a Bachelor degree from an accredited university and a minimum of three years experience as a professional software developer or programmer, and academic and professional records that suggest the likelihood of success in demanding graduate courses. Non-matriculated students are admitted to courses on a seating-available basis only. Matriculated students are given preference for course offerings, especially for required and core courses. To earn a certificate, four courses (12 credits) need to be taken from the offerings of that certificate.
