Successful completion of an Engineering Certificate is included on transcripts. Note that no course counted for degree credit can be counted for more than one minor or certificate.

This certificate creates an opportunity for interested students to gain specialized expertise and recognition for a personal and professional commitment to enhanced communication skills. With the certificate, participating students can establish communication expertise through courses that expand on communication practices in contexts beyond engineering, deepen theoretical understanding of communication, and facilitate professional development in writing, oral communication, and critical thinking.

  • Availability of the courses (including the foundational courses) for timetabling purposes is not guaranteed; the onus is on the student to ensure compatibility with their timetable.
  • If a student is pursuing both the Communication Certificate and another Minor or Certificate that lists the course, the courses listed above can only be counted towards one certificate or minor, not both.
