Electrical Engineering Certificate

Electricity flows through every organization, and because it affects all communities, electrical engineers must maintain diverse skill sets to keep power grids and business lines open for use. The Electrical Engineering Certificate concentrates on learning the fundamental skills needed to understand projects from the early stages of design to the final stages of implementation. Ranging from transmission line and substation design to power system operation and electrical equipment aging, we offer a broad selection of electrical engineering courses. Work with our experienced instructors, who are engineers themselves, to learn new skills and solve problems you’re currently facing.

Learning Outcomes

  • Analyze key electrical parameters and fundamental operations of power systems
  • Define industry practices, technical requirements, configuration philosophies, information resources and work procedures
  • Use case studies to better predict interruptions, outages and blackouts within power networks
  • Apply cost-saving strategies to your electrical engineering projects
  • Examine case studies to strengthen the fundamentals of your electrical engineering processes
  • Identify the operating principles, controls and protections of various electrical systems

Courses

To get started, enroll in one of our three-day sessions below. Earn the certificate in as little as 18 months by completing nine or more days of courses.

Online course formats include live, course-paced, combined or on-demand. Blended courses offer both face-to-face and online components. View the session information on course pages for details.
