The Electric-drive Vehicle Engineering Graduate Certificate requires a minimum of 12 credits. The core course EVE 5110 is required, and a maximum of four credits is allowed in research or directed study. The program is open to students with a bachelor's degree in engineering, and in other mathematics-based sciences in exceptional cases. Certification procedures in place in WSU's Graduate School will be followed. Should a student become interested later in pursuing the proposed master's degree after completing the graduate certificate, eight of the 12 certificate credits can be transferred toward the master's degree.
