Certificate Programs

Microchip held between someone's fingers

Tufts' practice-oriented certificate programs consist of four or five graduate courses, primarily offered in the late afternoon or evening.

Our graduate courses are taught by award-winning, tenured professors in Tufts School of Engineering, as well as by industry professionals.

The certificate credits equal roughly half of the credits for a master's degree, and many credits will transfer to our graduate programs.

All of our certificate programs can be taken on a part-time basis.

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers the following certificate programs:

  • In the certificate program in computer engineering, students gain foundational knowledge in connected systems, networking applications, and computer architecture. Hone your skills in the analysis, design, and operation of computing devices and software. Course areas include: computer networking, computer architecture, and computer software/systems. Program jointly administered with the Department of Computer Science.
