Industrial Design Certificate

Student in the certificate curriculum will be eligible to take the Autodesk certification in specific Autodesk software at an Autodesk Certified Training Center. Mastercam offers a certification exam. NIMS certification opportunities available in .

Industrial Design Certificate

NC State’s Engineering Design certificate program allows students to complete a series of coordinated courses in a shorter period of time than an associate degree. Students in associate degree programs may benefit from adding a certificate to their areas of expertise. A minimum of a 2.00 grade-point average must be obtained for all required courses in order to receive a certificate.

This certificate is eligible for federal financial aid.

Upon successful completion of a certificate program, a Certificate Request form must be completed in the Student Records Office in order to receive a certificate.
