Graduate certificate programs

Graduate certificates are designed to appeal to working professionals, and are open to anyone holding a Bachelor of Science, Master of Science or Ph.D. degree in engineering or a physical science with a minimum of 12 months of professional employment experience or currently accepted into a graduate degree program at Missouri S&T. Certificate courses taken for graduate credit can be counted toward a Master of Science degree once you are accepted into the program.

Certificates offered:

Designed to provide graduate engineers with the advanced knowledge and skills necessary for the conception and implementation of complex systems, with an emphasis on the processes by which complex systems are conceived, planned, designed, built, tested, and certified.

More information


Joint effort between computer engineering and systems engineering to provide practicing engineers with the necessary skills to develop and design the operation of network centric systems. Network centric systems are frequently "systems of systems" with complex interfaces and interactions.

More information

Provides practicing engineers the opportunity to develop the necessary skills in the use and development of computational intelligence algorithms based on evolutionary computation, neural networks, fuzzy logic, and complex systems theory. Engineers can also learn how to integrate common sense reasoning with computational intelligence elective courses such as data mining and knowledge discovery.

More information

Provides practicing engineers the opportunity to develop the necessary skills in the use of current modeling techniques to develop and simulate complex, multi-disciplinary engineering systems. In addition, engineers will learn methods to automate data acquisition for system development, establish rules for usability of model resources, and acquire necessary skills for simulating the designed systems.
