Graduate Certificate - Project Engineering & Construction Management

Although available to all interested students, the project engineering and construction management graduate certificate program was created to specifically meet the needs of visiting faculty/graduate students from Algeria as part of the collaborative program “Development of Engineering Management Curriculum and Distance-Learning Methodologies in Algeria: An Educational Partnership,” sponsored by the United States Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, and the North African Partnerships Program.

The objective of this collaborative program is to provide educational and technical assistance to Algeria in order for that country to develop new graduate programs in engineering management and construction engineering and modern teaching methodologies, including Internet and distance learning. The cooperative framework provides participants with engineering management skills and expertise to prepare them to be leaders at their home institutions.

‎Admission Requirements

This certificate program is open to all persons holding a BS, MS, or PhD degree with a degree in Engineering or hard science with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.75 and who have a minimum of 12 months of professional employment experience or are currently accepted into a graduate degree program at Missouri S&T.

Once admitted to the program, the student must take the four designate courses.  In order to receive a Graduate Certificate, the student must have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better in the certificate courses.  Once admitted into the program, a student will be given three years to complete the program.

Students admitted to the Certificate Program will have non-degree graduate status but will earn graduate credit for the courses they complete.  If the four-course sequence is completed with a grade of "B" or better in each of the courses, they will be admitted to the appropriate MS program if they apply.  The certificate course taken by students admitted to the MS program will count towards their master's degree.  Students who do not have all of the prerequisite courses necessary to take the courses in the Certificate Program will be allowed to take "bridge" courses at either the graduate or undergraduate level to prepare for the formal Certificate courses.
