The Graduate Certificate in Electric Power and Energy Systems aims at preparing graduate students and professional engineers to work in the electric power and energy industry.  The program requires the completion of 12 graduate semester credit hours (SCH), consisting of two required courses and two technical electives, with an overall average GPA of at least 3.00/4.00.  Admission into the program will normally require applicants to have bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering or related field.  Depending on their background, non-Electrical Engineering applicants may be asked to enroll in leveraging coursework.

Applicants enrolled in a Master's degree must be in good standing in the Graduate School, while professional engineers must meet admission requirements for non-degree student enrollment.  Up to six elective SCH of electric power and energy coursework may be transferable from other accredited institutions, and up to 12 graduate SCH of the certificate may be transferable as credit toward MS degree requirements.
