The Graduate Certificate in Engineering and Construction Project Management is a 12 hour program offered through the School of Science and Engineering. Engineering and construction companies are increasingly requiring project management skills for those who hold technical degrees to successfully complete projects and to be promoted in their organizations. The Graduate Certificate program is designed to meet this need and enable students holding a Bachelor’s degree in an appropriate discipline to learn higher-level project management skills that are critical to the successful planning and completion of projects across the spectrum of engineering, construction, and related disciplines. The Graduate is intended for post-Baccalaureate professionals working in the Kansas City area in mid- and upper-level engineering, construction, and management positions. The Certificate requires a minimum of 12 credit hours at the 5000-level or above. Students must maintain 3.0 graduate GPA while enrolled. Upon completion, up to 12 hours of Civil Engineering Certificate courses may be applicable to the MS in Civil Engineering.
