The Gordon Engineering Leadership Program is a transformational, technical, and challenging graduate-level learning experience targeted for engineering professionals.
The Gordon Institute offers a Graduate Certificate in Engineering Leadership as formal recognition of midlevel engineers’ leadership acumen and broadened cross-functional capabilities.
Pursuing the graduate certificate allows participants to:
- Take part in a hands-on curriculum taught by industry-experienced professors
- Work with peers from across engineering fields on leadership skills development
- Receive one-on-one mentoring from industry experts and faculty
The Gordon Engineering Leadership Program anchors around an intense, market-worthy challenge project based on your organization’s strategic needs. This is a unique opportunity to apply your classroom experience in a professional setting, potentially further accelerating your career.
How to Earn a Graduate Certificate in Engineering Leadership
If you already have a Master of Science, then you can complete the one-year program to earn a Graduate Certificate in Engineering Leadership.
If you do not have a Master of Science, then you can still be considered for the Graduate Certificate in Engineering Leadership if you have at least three years of engineering work experience.
Additional Information can be found on the Gordon Engineering Leadership Program website.
Beyond a Graduate Certificate
Most candidates pursue the Gordon Engineering Leadership Program as part of a Master of Science degree in the engineering discipline of their choice. Upon completion, they earn both the Master of Science degree and a Graduate Certificate in Engineering Leadership.
