UofL Unveils Online Graduate Certificates for Structural Engineering and Transportation Engineering

UofL Online Civil Engineering Graduate Certificates

The J.B. Speed School of Engineering at University of Louisville is proud to announce two new online Graduate Certificates in Civil Engineering that are designed to serve the nationwide demand for specialized civil engineers.

• Graduate Certificate in Structural Engineering

• Graduate Certificate in Transportation Engineering

The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) recently released their 2017 Infrastructure Report Card, indicating the United States has significant room for infrastructure improvement. In the coming years, civil engineers will be tasked with leading the charge to develop more sustainable national and local infrastructures.

Given the ASCE’s report and projected job growth in the civil engineering field (8% through 2024) by BLS.gov, UofL’s certificate programs are well suited to accommodate the education needs of current and future generations of professionals in this field.

Graduate Certificate Program Overview

UofL’s online Graduate Certificate programs are developed specifically with working professionals in mind, providing an ideal educational path for those balancing school, work and their personal lives.

The online Graduate Certificates in Structural Engineering and Transportation Engineering can provide you with specialized skills required of you as a practicing civil engineer, and can prepare you to stand out as a professional and advance your career.

As Dr. J.P. Mohsen, Professor and Chair of the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department, expressed:

“These certificates make it possible for you to gain the expertise and credentials needed to be an engineer leader in your organization.” 

Both certificates require 12 credit hours each for graduation, are comprised of three core courses and one elective, and can be completed 100% online in a self-paced learning environment. Certificate credits can also be applied toward the online Master of Science in Civil Engineering degree. Additional graduate admission requirements apply.

A Bachelor’s Degree in Civil Engineering is necessary for admission into either Graduate Certificate program. The GRE is not required, as long you have a minimum GPA of 2.75 in your previous degree. Active-duty military personnel may benefit from a military-friendly tuition rate, upon qualification.
