About the Program

The Peace Engineering Certificate will introduce students to the field of Peace Engineering and train students to develop systems-level analysis skills that are critical to the field’s practice. The certificate program was designed in response to requests from federal and academic institutions for Drexel University to provide technical training in Peace Engineering without requiring a BS in Engineering or full-time enrollment at Drexel.

Courses for the certificate are selected from the first-year courses used in the Peace Engineering MS program and are appropriate for anyone with a bachelor’s degree in an applied or social science, or with appropriate work experience. The certificate will be made available to other colleges and universities for use as a minor so that students can learn about Peace Engineering without the parent university having to begin a dedicated program.

Admission Requirements

Bachelor’s degree in an applied or social science, or appropriate work experience.
