Defense Energy Certificate Program


Defense Energy Certificate Programs (Residence and Distance Learning)

The Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) offers unique defense energy certificate programs available in residence or via distributed learning (DL). These energy-focused programs can provide graduate education and enable a better understanding of the complex issues facing operational and installation energy. The certificate programs are also open to uniformed and civilian Department of Defense (DoD) members who do not have an opportunity to enroll in an NPS degree program.

This offering (cohort) will begin 28 March 2022. The certificate program is free to all students, but applications must be submitted, transcripts received, and a Participation Agreement signed before NPS can process the application. Applications are due NLT 7 January 2022.
