Graduate Certificates

A Cockrell School of Engineering Graduate Certificate in a career-aligned specialized topics area enables the working engineer a cost-effective post-graduate option to update technical skills and deepen knowledge.

Stackable graduate certificate programs provide students with the opportunity to earn a transcript-recognized, non-degree credential for completing a structured sequence of courses. These programs are specifically designed to meet identified workforce needs and to provide engineers and STEM professionals with skills and knowledge that will be useful for their lives and careers. TxEEE also offers various non-degree credential certificates which can be explored here.

Please note that admission to our online graduate certificate option does not assure you of admission into the UT Austin Graduate School to pursue a graduate degree. However, if you decide to apply to an associated master’s degree program, following successful application and admission, graduate certificate coursework may be used to satisfy the requirements of a master’s degree. This creates a stackable pathway towards a degree.

Our graduate certificate program listed below is exclusively offered online and requires that students have attained a bachelor's degree. For the graduate certificate program, students learn from the same faculty who have helped establish The University of Texas as one of the top universities in the world.
