(18 semester hours minimum)

The principle objective of this “gateway” credential is to leverage the efficacy of the College of Technology (COT) seamless pathways and increase the pipeline of students in STEM disciplines. The certificate purpose is to fill the need for analytical learners and careers in engineering and science. This certificate will integrate an engineering explorations course to expose the students to the vast opportunities available to them as they hone their mathematics. This approach will connect them to the field even before they matriculate to the more advanced engineering courses later in the degree(s).

Learners who complete the Engineering Science-STEM certificate will:

  • Demonstrate an awareness of engineering and STEM academic pathways and career opportunities;
  • Demonstrate a good understanding of engineering principles and concepts;
  • Demonstrate a good understanding of mathematical concepts and techniques with regards to STEM;
  • Demonstrate an ability to research and approach problem solving analytically;
  • Demonstrate an ability to think through a problem in a logical manner;
  • Demonstrate an ability to carry analysis through conclusion and present findings in an organized manner;
  • Demonstrate effective communication skills and an ability to work efficiently in teams.
