Digital credentials

Gaining real-world engineering experience

Current students can earn digital credentials to demonstrate skills learned through classwork. The skills signified by digital credentials can set up a student for greater post-graduation success.

Digital credentials are designed with sharing in mind. While not a replacement for certificates, minors, or degree programs, digital credentials can be displayed in one’s public profile to provide evidence that they are working towards mastering critical 21st century competencies.
