CES Program Requirements
To qualify for the CES certificate a student must:
- Propose a program of study according
to the stipulations below, including
- Complete a project that involves all
principles of CES and requires significant expertise in a science or
engineering application area. This requirement will normally be satisfied
automatically by the student's thesis work for the regular degree.
- Have the program of study approved by
the CES Coordinating Committee.
- Complete the CES program of study with
at least a B in each course.
- Complete the regular degree.
- Notify the CES Coordinating Committee
of completion and submit appropriate documentation.
The student's program of study must include the following
To obtain a graduate certificate in CES, a student must complete
(one semester) courses (click here for course
descriptions) in each of the following areas:
- A selection of courses, part of which,
contain the required CES courses from the
- A description of the student's major
area of study, and a proposal of how to meet the interdisciplinary
requirement, and a brief rationale of why this particular set of courses
was chosen and how the ingredients fit together.
- A student may petition the
Coordinating Committee to be exempt from some of the requirements put forth
here, or to propose substitutes for some required courses.
