Graduate certificates offer in-depth skill building in targeted areas and communicate your expertise to employers. Students may earn free-standing graduate certificates without pursuing the entire master’s degree; those working toward the master’s degree may earn and apply graduate certificates toward the full MS-EE.

To earn a certificate, complete the designated course sequence with a 3.0 grade-point average. An official University of Colorado Boulder graduate certificate will be awarded automatically upon successful completion of the course sequence and will appear on your detailed course transcript.
