UNH offers two new online graduate certificates in engineering


Wednesday, May 25, 2016

The University of New Hampshire will offer its first pair of online graduate certificates this fall in ubiquitous computing and wireless communication systems. These electrical engineering certificates, the fifth and sixth graduate programs offered by UNH Online, join online master’s degrees in business administration, social work, and educational studies, and a doctor of nursing practice.

“We live in an era of ubiquitous computing,” said Andrew Kun, associate professor of electrical engineering and program coordinator. “We are surrounded by interconnected computing devices that have become parts of the fabric of our lives. This certificate will prepare students to develop and deploy ubiquitous computing systems.” Kun added that “wireless communication systems connect people and devices in diverse environments from homes, and businesses, to roads and to battlefields. This certificate will provide students with the tools to work with a wide array of wireless communication systems.”

Each certificate is comprised of four courses offered completely online, and can be completed in as few as nine months. Courses are asynchronous, meaning students can participate, view lectures, complete assignments, and access materials at any time. Although each certificate can be completed in nine months, the time to completion is customizable to meet different career paths.

Applications are now being accepted for the fall which begins in late August. More information about the online ubiquitous computing certificate is available at http://online.unh.edu/graduate-certificate-ubiquitous-computing, and information about wireless communication systems is at http://online.unh.edu/graduate-certificate-wireless-communication-systems.

UNH Online fosters the growth of online courses and programs at the University of New Hampshire in order to make the high-quality courses offered by UNH more flexible, convenient and accessible throughout New Hampshire and the region.
