The Renewable Power Systems: Electrical Engineering Graduate Certificate (EEGC) is an online program concentrating in the growing field of renewable power and energy systems. This certificate is comprised of five courses (15 hours) offered by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Four core courses (12 hours) are required along with one elective courses (3 hours) to complete the certificate.

Students working toward the certificate must be admitted to the EEGC program. Students must have a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering with suitable prerequisite courses and/or professional experience. Students with other bachelor’s degrees and with suitable professional experience will also be considered.

The graduate certificate will be taken completely online. At least two EEGC course will be available fully online every spring and fall semester. Online lectures will be conducted either in asynchronous or synchronous online mode or HyFlex when possible. Labs for online courses will be conducted in synchronous online mode. For online labs, students are required to provide all laboratory equipment and supplies needed to complete the assignments, which may include platform boards, parts, measurement instruments, plant models and programs, etc.

Graduate credit toward an MSE degree in electrical engineering is earned for all classes completed with a grade B or better.
