A certificate program comprises an integrated series of seminars, short courses and other study sessions directed at a specific subject area. A minimum of six courses plus a project is required. Each certificate program is comprised of three components: a core component consisting of a minimum of three courses, an elective component consisting of at least three courses and a project course. The project course usually has the same weight as a regular course.
The Continuing Engineering Education Committee, on behalf of Faculty Council, selects the list of courses, which constitutes a certificate program from the list of courses given at the end of this section. The Committee can also choose other available University courses to be included in a diploma program. Currently, the Faculty offers a certificate program in Electrical Maintenance for Engineers. The program normally requires a minimum of two terms to complete.
