This program is designed to provide formalized education in the area of Project Engineering and Construction Management.

Specifically, this program will give the participants the ability to:
This certificate program is designed to appeal to working professionals. It is open to all persons holding a bachelor's, master's or doctorate degree in engineering or a physical science and who have a minimum of 12 months of professional employment experience, or are currently accepted into a graduate degree program at Missouri S&T.
Students admitted to the certificate program will have non-degree graduate status but will earn graduate credit for the courses they complete.
If they complete the four-course sequence with a grade of B or better in each of the courses taken, they will be admitted to the master's degree program of the department administering the certificate, without having to take the GRE; however, students must still apply for entry into the master's degree program. Certificate courses taken for graduate credit may count toward the student's master’s degree. Students who do not have all of the prerequisite courses necessary to take the courses in the certificate program will be allowed to take “bridge” courses at either the graduate or undergraduate level to prepare for the formal certificate courses.
Once admitted to the program, a student will be given three years to complete the program so long as a B average is maintained in the courses taken.
Students applying for a graduate certificate must submit the following:
Unofficial transcripts are sufficient for an admit decision.

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.
