The Graduate Certificate in Plastics Engineering Fundamentals is designed to provide engineering professionals - such as mechanical engineers involved in the manufacturing or design of plastic parts - with the plastics background they generally do not receive as part of their undergraduate education. This four-course online certificate program provides students with the fundamental concepts associated with plastics materials, processing and design.
All of the courses in this certificate program may be applied towards any of the graduate degree programs offered through UMass Lowell's Department of Plastics Engineering.
The University of Massachusetts Lowell is an accredited member of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.
