Materials Science Post-Associate Certificate

The Materials Science Post-Associate Certificate is designed for working technical professionals who need specific training in metallurgical technologies or laboratory practices.

This program is geared toward part-time students and will enhance the student’s ability to contribute in metallurgical technology and laboratory settings. In addition, the program will benefit certain personnel in management, supervision, sales, quality, purchasing, or other materials-related technical support functions.

Prior to admission, students must have earned a minimum of an accredited associate degree in applied science.  Prerequisite and co-requisite requirements must be honored or evidence of prior learning proficiency must be demonstrated.  Please contact the appropriate administrator to discuss options. The post-associate certificate is awarded upon successful completion of 16 credit hours (exact number may vary slightly due to credit value or content of courses).

Not all courses are offered each semester. Students should work with an academic advisor to develop a schedule that will work for them. Students planning to transfer should check the transfer institution’s requirements/guides or discuss their options with an academic advisor.
