Application Information

Admission requirements

  • Must hold a Bachelor's degree in engineering or science from a recognized, accredited institution (transcript required)
  • A minimum of one semester of calculus
    Note: Additional semesters of calculus or strong background evidence of other quantitative skills is preferred.

Application process

Completed applications will be reviewed beginning April 1, 2011, and will be considered on a continuous basis until the program is filled. The graduate application consists of:

  • A completed SUNY-ESF graduate application form (the GRE is not required). An online application can be completed at https://wwwinfo-2.esf.edu/gradapp.  There is a $60 application fee.
  • Official transcripts of previously completed undergraduate degrees.
  • Three letters of recommendation from individuals who can attest to suitability for certificate study and interest in advanced engineering practice.

Will these courses apply to a Master's degree?

You will earn graduate-level credit for each of the five courses you successfully complete. Successful completion of this certificate does not guarantee admission to a Master’s degree program. Courses may be applied, upon admission, to Master’s degree programs such as ESF’s Master of Science in Environmental and Resources Engineering or SU’s Master’s programs in Bioengineering or Chemical Engineering. Courses may provide CEUs or PDHs for professional engineers and architects, depending upon your professional licensing requirements.
