Program overview

The advanced certificate in vibrations provides students with specialized skills that are sought after in a variety of industrial settings. Engineers with skills in vibration engineering contribute to manufacturing production systems, aerospace systems, automotive engineering, medical product development, building mechanical and plumbing systems, consumer product development, and a host of industrial equipment and process systems. This certificate takes students beyond the normal preparation in vibration engineering that students typically complete during their undergraduate program of study. Students learn to use sophisticated software tools, analytical techniques and experimental methods to design, develop, and implement solutions for problems of vibration control and minimization in engineering systems. Students are exposed to modern technologies used in industry to ensure that they are prepared for their specialized job market. The curriculum answers a need for graduate level instruction for practicing engineers in a field of importance for the 21st century.

Curriculum

The advanced certificate requires students to successfully complete six required courses. Students may be able to apply the courses toward a master’s degree at a later date.

The program answers a need for graduate level instruction for practicing engineers in the greater Rochester area, in a field of importance for the 21st century.

Curriculum

The advanced certificate requires students to successfully complete three required courses and one graduate elective. Students may apply the courses within this certificate program toward a master’s degree.
