- Via Asynchronous or Synchronous, Interactive, Distance-Enabled Delivery

The University of Pittsburgh Swanson School of Engineering has established an Electric Power Engineering Post-Baccalaureate/Graduate Certificate Program that rises to the challenge of meeting the nation’s critical development needs for electric power engineering professionals. This is a distance-enabled program in electric power engineering that allows students to take classes either synchronously or asynchronously, depending on the course.

The program is deeply rooted in core electric power engineering principles and focuses on the expansion and enhanced reliability and resilience of electric power grid infrastructure through application of power electronics and advanced control technologies, as well as renewable energy integration and smart grids. Program content - combined with innovative distance-enabled delivery and collaborative program components - makes this program an attractive and unique choice in graduate engineering, particularly for individuals in industry/business.
