Certificate Program

The University of Pittsburgh Swanson School of Engineering has established an Electric Power Engineering Post-Baccalaureate/Graduate Certificate Program that rises to the challenge of meeting the nation's critical development needs for electrical energy professionals. Offered online and on campus, our online format allows students to attend classroom lectures in real time, and also allows synchronous participation remotely via the Internet. 

The program is deeply rooted in core electric power engineering principles and focuses on the expansion and enhanced reliability of electric power grid infrastructure through application of power electronics and advanced control technologies, as well as renewable energy integration and smart grids. Program content - combined with innovative distance-enabled delivery and collaborative program components - makes this program an attractive and unique choice in graduate engineering, particularly for individuals in industry and business.
