Certificate Programs

UF EDGE offers complete online delivery of engineering graduate certificates which are shorter programs consisting of three to five courses.

Certificate Programs Currently Offered

Electrical & Computer Engineering

These certificates are a good way to expand or refresh some of your engineering skills in a given area if you do not desire a full graduate degree. If you decide later to pursue an online graduate degree through UF EDGE, the courses you completed can be transferred (pending departmental approval) to count toward your 10-course online master’s degree if you make the appropriate grades.

All degrees and certificates earned are the same high-quality programs on-campus engineering students participate in but can be completed from wherever you live or work.


All applicants must apply online at the Office of Admissions: 1) complete the application at https://admissions.ufl.edu/apply/more [note there are two links on this page and you must select either “currently enrolled UF student” or “new student” link], 2) remit the $30 application fee plus a $7 processing fee, 3) submit official transcripts from your prior BS degree institution, and 4) complete the residency information and verification process. Once the Office of Admissions has reviewed your application, your information will be referred to the departments for an admission decision.
