Certificates


Naval Postgraduate School’s Systems Engineering Departments offers DL graduate certificates as part of a new stackable approach to customized and tailored graduate education to meet the needs of stakeholders, sponsors and students.  These stackable certificates can meet master’s degree curricula requirements leading to MSSE, MSES or MSSEM degrees.

 

130 Systems Engineering Capstone Certificate

This four-course academic Systems Engineering Capstone (SEC) certificate program is targeted for mid- and upper-level engineers working in or in support of the Defense Acquisition System but has great benefit for all who seek further knowledge in the theory and practice of systems engineering and the implementation of sound systems engineering principles within an organization. It provides students the opportunity to demonstrate they can understand complex problems, propose rational solutions, analyze and recommend the best solution, and communicate the results. The capstone experience is the final synthesis of systems engineering education and is necessary to fulfill the requirements for an MS in Systems Engineering or MS in Engineering Systems degree.
