The Dynamics Certificate is intended for working engineers in mechanical and related fields of engineering. The certificate will provide a fundamental and broad background in engineering dynamics. The Dynamics Certificate includes a strong foundational base in dynamics and applications in optimization, robotics, mechatronics, or dynamics of aircraft or spacecraft (depending on the chosen elective courses). Completion of the certificate will allow the student to formulate and solve the complex dynamics problems that arise in such fields as robotics and space flight.
Applicants must have completed an accredited Bachelor’s degree program in Mechanical or a closely related field of engineering. They are expected to have prior course work in undergraduate dynamics and mathematics.
Students must complete a total of 16 units as described below, with a minimum GPA of 3.0 and a grade of C or better in each course.
Required Courses (16 units):
