This program is designed to prepare the scientific and technological workforce for the emerging electric-drive vehicle engineering field. It offers an efficient way to obtain a certified level of training, especially for working engineers and researchers. It may be taken as a freestanding program or concurrently with a master's degree program.
Admission to this program is contingent upon admission to the Graduate School. The program will be open to students with a Bachelor's degree in engineering, chemistry, and physics, and in other mathematics-based sciences in exceptional cases.
The Electric-drive Vehicle Engineering Graduate Certificate will require a minimum of twelve credits. The core course EVE 5110 is required, and a maximum of four credits is allowed in Research or Directed Studied.All course work must be completed in accordance with the regulations of the Graduate School and the College of Engineering. Should a student become interested later in pursuing the proposed master's degree after completing the graduate certificate, eight of the twelve certificate credits can be transferred toward the master's degree.
