Requirements

Students who wish to apply must meet the following requirements.

  • BS degree in engineering or science from an accredited college in the United States or an approved institution of higher learning abroad. The Transportation Certificate requires basic knowledge in the area of civil engineering and transportation, and the Construction Management Certificate requires basic knowledge in the area of civil engineering and construction management. Students with a non-engineering BS must have taken courses to gain this background knowledge.
  • GPA of 3.0/4.0 or higher for the last 60 semester hours in a BS program. Students who do not meet the 3.0/4.0 GPA criterion may still be eligible to enroll if they have significant experience outside of the classroom. Such students are encouraged to contact ceeonline@illinois.edu to determine if they are eligible to register for online classes and participate in the certificate program.

Application

  • To apply, please complete the application and return to ceeonline@illinois.edu.
  • Official transcripts reflecting the total BS degree program and any other degrees listed under the "Degree Information" section must be sent along with the application before it will be processed.

Application Deadlines

  • August 1 for Fall Semester
  • December 1 for Spring Semester
