    INSTITUTION INFORMATION Institutional Accreditation: Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Program Accreditation: Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Institutional Membership(s): SOC PROGRAM DETAILS Program Information: Graduate Certificate - Certificate-Graduate Enrollment: 999 seats total Application Deadline: Open How Students and Instructors Communicate: Electronic Conferencing, E-mail, Online Assignment Submission, Threaded Discussion Board Subject: Engineering METHOD OF COURSE INSTRUCTION

    The program is delivered primarily through compressed video

    Supplemental delivery formats include compressed video

    This course uses APEX

    This certificate recognizes post-bachelors preparation for engineering of modern wireless circuits, antennas and communication systems. The applicable course list allows significant flexibility to accommodate variability in student preparation, and course scheduling. The program allows emphasis to be placed in either circuits and antennas or systems and networks, while requiring exposure to both.
    The candidate must have an earned B.S. in Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering. Any other degree tract must meet the Engineering department's approval. Must have completed one semester in Electromagnetic Field Theory.
    Distance students must have a computer with WMO 10 and a high speed internet connection.
    Classes are streamed live and archived for a period of two weeks after each class offering convenient, on-demand viewing. You MUST apply for admission to the Industrial Engineering department and once admitted, register through APEX as a webcast or live broadcast student in order to be eligible. Also, a NetID will be required in order to access the University Web Portal (Blackboard) which will allow access to University online services and, most importantly, the course materials posted by your instructor. The NetID, available to enrolled USF students allows students to access learning resources online, including the USF Library. For more information please call 1-866-974-1222 or e-mail help-ac@usf.edu. The Library can be reached at 813-974-2729, or by email. The Bookstore may be reached by calling (Toll-Free: 1-800-873-8114.) Books may be ordered online. The bookstore and library are able to accommodate online learners and provide detailed information on their web sites.
    Financial aid opportunities can be discussed with your program advisor. Non-degree seeking students are not eligible for financial aid. Please contact the Financial Aid Office at 813-974-4700 for exceptions and the names of private lenders. Check the website for additional information. In order to be considered a full time graduate student for financial aid purposes, a student must taken 9 semester hours of graduate level work per semester.


    Focusing on one or more selected wireless topics, the Certificate requires the completion of 12 credits hours plus one credit of independent study for a total of 13 credit hours for completion of the certificate program.
