This certificate program is designed to provide formalized education in the area of contemporary structural engineering.
As a student in the program, you have the option of taking courses that provide a more classical approach to the study of structural engineering and engineering mechanics. Courses in this certificate program cover analysis and design of structural systems.
This certificate program is open to all individuals who hold a bachelor's, master's or doctorate degree and who have a minimum of 12 months of post-bachelor's professional employment experience.
Once admitted to the program, you must take four designated courses. In order to receive a graduate certificate, you must have an average cumulative grade of 3.0 or better in the certificate courses.
Students admitted to the certificate program will have non-degree graduate status, but will earn graduate credit for the courses they complete.
If you complete the four-course sequence with a grade of B or better in each of the courses taken, you can enroll in the master's program, if you so choose. The certificate credits you've earned will count toward your master’s degree. If you do not have all of the prerequisite courses necessary to take the courses in the certificate program, you can take “bridge” courses at either the graduate or undergraduate level to prepare for the formal certificate courses.
Once admitted to the program, you are given three years to complete the program so long as you maintain a B average in the courses taken.
Students applying for a graduate certificate must submit the following:
Unofficial transcripts are sufficient for an admit decision.
Official transcripts should be mailed to Global Learning:
Missouri University of Science and Technology
Office of Global Learning
G8 Norwood Hall, 320 West 12th Street

Are you a working professional who wants to earn your master's degree, but you don’t have time to take the GRE/GMAT? Then start in a graduate certificate program. Graduate certificates were designed as a pathway to a master's degree.* The admission requirements are more relaxed and credit earned will count toward your degree. Once you successfully earn your graduate certificate, you can continue with the corresponding master's degree without having to take the GRE/GMAT.
This graduate certificate may act as a pathway to the following master’s programs:
*Completion of a graduate certificate program does not automatically guarantee admission into a corresponding graduate degree program. To continue in a master’s degree program, you must apply.
