Certificate in Transmission & Distribution Engineering
Gonzaga University's School of Engineering and Applied Science is also offering an online Certificate Program in Transmission and Distribution (T&D) Engineering. The certificate consists of any five (3 credit) T&D courses developed through collaboration with practicing utility engineers (Certificate requires a cumulative 3.0 GPA in T&D courses). The eight-week courses are offered online, with flexible scheduling and taught by industry leaders and Gonzaga University engineering faculty.
May I Take Any Courses?
Yes, the program now consists of 14 graduate online courses and students may take any five for their certificate. Students are generally focusing on courses with either a transmission or distribution focus but we encourage students to take courses which best fit their professional needs.
Will Certificate Courses Count Toward the Master's?
Yes, all 15 credits taken for the T&D Certificate may be used toward the Master's degree. Earning the certificate will not guarantee admission to the Master's and students may only transfer up to 15 credits from the certificate to the Master's.
Do I Need to Apply to the Certificate Program?
No, students may take all 15 credits (5 courses) as a non-matriculated student. Non-matriculated students may register on a course by course basis using the non-matriculated Certificate Registration Form.
