Students must have an average cumulative grade of 3.0 (B-grade) or better in the four certificate courses, and complete the requirements in 3 years or less to obtain their certificate.
Students successfully completing their certification program with a grade of B or better in all Certificate classes will be eligible to be admitted to the Masters of Engineering (M.E.) Program in Geotechnics, and the certificate courses will be counted towards the M.E. degree. In this case no GRE score will be required for admission to the M.E. program.
