Graduate Certificate in Advanced Computational Imaging
Modern imaging systems are high-technology devices whose design, operation and management require a complex collection of knowledge and skills. These electronic tomography images constructed from a series of “slices” taken from a scan have the capability of saving lives in the medical field – and improving quality, efficiency and productivity in the industrial arena.
As the process becomes more complicated, engineers and others designing and developing imaging systems must go beyond a bachelor’s degree to more completely understand the mathematical foundations of tomography – or be left behind as technology advances. With additional education, these professionals will be able to better work with the hardware and software of the embedded computing systems that are used to implement image construction and correction.
Certification often provides opportunities for professional advancement. UWM’s Graduate Certificate in Advanced Computational Engineering is open to post-baccalaureate students who seek continuing education for career development or who wish to enter the medical imaging field. The College of Engineering and Applied Science is uniquely qualified to offer the certification, which is co-taught by university professors and experienced private-sector professionals.
To obtain the certificate, students are required to complete a minimum of 15 credits of which at least 12 credits must be taken at UWM. Note: GE engineers participating in the Edison program are enrolled in graduate-level topics courses at UWM while completing the A part of the Edison program and can receive a total of 9 credits toward a graduate degree.
