Certificate requirements

Students interested in earning an Undergraduate Certificate in Control Systems must complete the following set of four courses (16 cr):

  • ECE 4330: Linear Network and Systems Analysis
  • ECE 4470: Control Systems I
  • ECE 5440: Computer Control Systems
  • ECE 5470: Control Systems II

All of these courses contain computer or/and design projects and require students to submit written project reports.

Program standards

All students must earn at least a C- in each of the courses to be applied toward the undergraduate certificate and complete the coursework (16 credits) with an overall GPA of at least 2.0. Students concurrently enrolled in an engineering undergraduate program will be governed by overall policy on substandard grades for students pursuing a B.S. degree (one substandard grade allowed for every 24 credits completed at WSU). Students who have completed a B.S. degree and are pursuing only the undergraduate certificate will be allowed one substandard grade, with a subsequent successful repeat of the course, during completion of this academic program.
