Can I enroll in a few courses without being admitted to the full program?
Yes. We offer four certificates, Engineering Management, Engineering Leadership, Certified Lean Six Sigma, and Engineering Analytics, that you can choose from. What makes the certificates unique is that the credit you earn through each one can be applied toward your full MEM degree. Upon completion, these certificates will appear with earned graduate credit on your transcript from an accredited institution, and not just on a list of continuing education classes.
I have taken some graduate courses. Can I transfer those credits to this program?
We can accept transfer credits if they meet the requirements set by the program director. The courses you have taken will be assessed during the application process. No more than two classes can be transferred
