In the future, the projected population increase and associated increase in demand for food, water, and energy could result in an increase in global average temperature; consequently, there is a need for professionals who can 1) design and develop efficient and effective systems to convert biological materials to fuels, chemicals and products; and 2) understand how this growth could degrade nature's ecosystem and contribute to solutions. 

The Bioproducts and Bioprocessing Graduate Certificate and Ecosystems Engineering Graduate Certificate, offered through the Department of Biosystems Engineering, allow engineers to advance their knowledge in one of these areas of study, which will impact quality of life in the near future. The programs can be completed online or on campus, and are available to both degree-seeking and non-degree-seeking students.

Both programs require 12 hours of courses, which can be completed almost entirely online. Students will coordinate with the department to satisfy any lab components. 

For more information and eligibility requirements, please visit either the Bioproducts and Bioprocessing or the Ecosystems Engineering graduate certificate program page.
