Why this certificate?

The Automotive Manufacturing Systems graduate certificate is for students looking to acquire more knowledge in automotive manufacturing. Students completing this certificate will explore the design, analysis, and operation of manufacturing systems as a combination of humans, machinery, equipment, tooling, controls, building, and transportation that are bound by a common material and information flow through application-based courses in state-of-the-art labs and classroom environments.

You are eligible to apply if...

  • Those who hold a bachelor's degree in engineering or equivalent from an institute of recognized standing (exceptions may be approved if the student has the background needed to succeed in the graduate engineering courses) are eligible.
