Graduate Certificate in Structural Design

Graduate Certificate Overview

The objective of the Structural Design certificate program is to allow students to focus on the design of structural components and systems. This provides students with the opportunity to both broaden and deepen knowledge in this area of structural engineering by learning the most up-to-code-based theory and design practices. The Structural Design Graduate Certificate has a basis in steel and concrete building design, with optional courses applying to various materials, structures, and applications. It offers an opportunity for industrial practitioners to enhance their structural design skills without necessarily having to apply for and complete a Master’s degree. The program consists of four courses (12 credit hours).
