The list of required courses will provide students with the fundamentals in stochastic processes, linear and nonlinear dynamical systems, and allow them to deepen their knowledge by selecting additional courses from the list of electives below.

The requirements for receiving a certificate are the following:

  • Acceptance to the program
  • Enrollment in a graduate program in a participating department
  • Completion of at least four courses (12 units) with a minimum GPA of 3.0 out of 4.0 that are approved by the program director and completion of requirements for a graduate degree in a participating department
  • Courses that apply toward the degree must be taken with the credit/letter grade option. The program must be consistent with the residency and other applicable requirements of Washington University and the McKelvey School of Engineering.
