Graduate Certificate in Engineering
Offered by the University of Maryland at College Park on the Frostburg State University Campus
The Graduate Certificate in Engineering Program is a practice oriented, part-time graduate program designed to assist engineers and technical professionals in the development of their careers and to provide the technical expertise needed in the rapidly changing business, government, and industrial environments. The program is intended for individuals who do not find a full masters degree program an appropriate option, and it offers integrated sets of core/elective courses from all the engineering departments. Late afternoon and evening classes are taught by full-time faculty and experienced adjunct faculty at the campus in College Park and at designated learning centers throughout Maryland, including Frostburg State University.
The Graduate Certificate in Engineering (GCE) is open to qualified applicants holding a regionally accredited baccalaureate degree in engineering or a related field. Applications are submitted to the University of Maryland's Graduate School. In addition to submitting a Graduate School admission application / fee, a copy of the applicant's college transcripts is required for evaluation. Applicants with an undergraduate GPA of less than 3.0 may be admitted on a provisional basis if their work experience has been salutary. In that case, two recommendation letters are required as well.
