This certificate program equips participants to remain at the forefront of advances in manufacturing technologies and material science. The program develops and enhances skills in analyzing, adopting and effectively utilizing advanced manufacturing methods and the interplay between manufacturing processes and material properties. Courses can be selected to suit areas of interest and/or job requirements. Coursework includes additive manufacturing, mechanical property characterization, wear analysis, nano-materials, statistical process control, etc. Selection of equipment and creation of a testing program to capture specific service conditions is undertaken.  Manufacturing and material property interaction in metals and polymers is examined.  Practicum courses can be taken for hands-on experiences in topics such as materials testing, process instrumentation, and automation.

A total of twelve (12) credit hours from the two concentration areas are required to complete for the graduate certificate.
