  • Graduate Certificate in Naval Engineering

    The Graduate Certificate in Naval Engineering is designed for engineers from any discipline who work in the development, design, construction, operation, maintenance, or logistic support of ships. The coursework provides an overall view of shipboard engineering plants as well as the basic design and operating principles of the propulsion and auxiliary systems of today’s Naval forces. You will also learn the Department of Defense approach to systems engineering and how to apply it to Naval Operations.

    The program can be completed in one year by taking one course per term, and the credits can be applied towards select Master's programs within the College of Engineering.


    State restrictions may apply to some programs.
