The Engineering Management Certificate is a graduate program that will help advance your career as you look to take on more responsibility or move into a management role. The program provides you with the principles and foundational concepts for the planning and management of industrial and technical pursuits. The certificate is available on-campus and online through our Engineering Online Program.

This certificate provides an option that would meet the demand for the key concepts and provide a graduate certificate for those unsure about committing to an entire master’s degree program. By design, successful certificate completion would also cover 40 percent of the MEM degree. Further, the certificate curriculum intentionally requires little to no prerequisites, making you highly marketable.

If you decide to transfer courses into a master’s degree program, like MEM, you should consult the Director of the Graduate Certificate Program (DGCP) regarding specific requirements. Also, note that NC State requires a B or higher grade to transfer into a master’s degree program per the Graduate Student Handbook (Section 3.1.D).
