Course Delivery Method

The Pump Reliability Engineering Certificate Pro- gram is delivered entirely online, accessible any- where in the world as an independent study program. For convenience, each three-credit-hour course is subdivided into three, 1-credit-hour course sections. Each section is four weeks long, independently evalu- ated and a prerequisite for the next section with the same three-digit number, but different decimal. For example: MEEN 470.1 is a prerequisite for MEEN 470.2, and MEEN 470.2 is a prerequisite for 470.3. After successfully completing all three sections of a course, students earn a total of 3 credit hours.
