Professional Master's Degrees and Graduate Certificates for Engineers and Technical Professionals

Earn your master's degree or professional graduate certificate 100% online. Increase your career prospects by enrolling in a Master of Engineering or Graduate Certificate in any one of these areas: engineering management, space operations, or systems engineering.

A Master of Engineering degree is an applied professional degree, giving technical depth within the degree area and using a capstone project instead of a research thesis to provide experiential mastery of the subject area.

Graduate certificates are a shorter and practical way to expand your skill set for increased career opportunities. If a master's degree is more than you need, a graduate certificate offers a subset of master's level courses in the same subject areas as the online Master of Engineering degrees. Completion of the graduate certificate adds professional skills to enhance your current job or future prospects. Courses completed under a graduate certificate program may be able to be applied to the same subject Master of Engineering degree.
