The Graduate Certificate in Particle Technology is offered by the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and is administered through the Engineering Outreach Program. This certificate is designed for engineering professionals working in the process industries and/or for undergraduate or graduate engineers desiring to expand their knowledge of particle technology. The objective is to equip professionals with the knowledge and ability to meet the expectations of employers in the processing industry with respect to particle technology expertise. Completion of the certificate requirements are noted on the student’s graduate transcript and a certificate is awarded and signed by the Director of the Graduate Certificate in Particle Technology, the Chair of the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, and the Assistant Dean/Director of the Engineering Outreach Program.
Satisfactory completion of the 9 credit graduate certificate requires:
- The student earns a grade of B- or better.
- The student maintains and overall GPA of 3.0 or higher.
- The student completes the core and elective graduate certificate requirements (see course requirements).
Powders and particulate solids are commonplace in the process industries but are not treated in depth in the undergraduate engineering curricula. The Graduate Certificate in Particle Technology is designed to fill that gap for the practicing engineer or for undergraduates anticipating industrial employment. This certificate is offered through the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and is administered through the Professional Engineering Outreach Program.
The University of Delaware published graduate student tuition base rate for graduate credit in 2017-18 is $1,770 per credit hour. UD Deans may offer adjustments to students in specific programs that may reduce the per credit costs.
