CERTIFICATE

About our Marine Design Certificate

The Architectural & Engineering Design program prepares students for technician-level work assisting architects, engineers and contractors who work in diverse manufacturing industries. Offering a variety of design disciplines, the program provides students with individual choices of specialization including architectural, mechanical and marine interests. The Architectural & Engineering Design program provides a wide selection of courses, both specific and broad in scope, reinforced by established degree-level courses in general education and related technologies. 

The program is accessible to full- and part-time students. Some sequential scheduling of courses, however, is necessary to provide program continuity. All candidates are encouraged to contact the advisors in the Architectural & Engineering Design department regarding course and program selection.
