The goal of this certificate is to give students and working professionals an opportunity to broaden their technical knowledge while contributing to regional economic development. Two real-world projects-one for a client and one for the student’s own pursuits-are combined with a series of six short courses to provide both context and substance for gaining the knowledge needed to create technical prototypes.

These degree requirements are subject to periodic revision by the academic department, and the College reserves the right to make exceptions and substitutions as judged necessary in individual cases. Therefore, the College strongly urges students to consult regularly with their major advisor and CLAS advisor to confirm the best plans of study before finalizing them.
