Become an Expert

Hone your expertise in the rapidly growing field of modern digital design and testing with WPI’s online graduate certificate in Electrical & Computer Engineering. The suite of four courses covers the tools and techniques in component design and system design, modeling, and testing, with a focus on the use of design languages such as C++ and Verilog.


The graduate certificate is comprised of four thematically related courses that should be taken in the following order:

  1. ECE 5720 Modeling and Synthesis of Digital Systems Using Verilog
  2. ECE 5724 Digital Systems Testing and Design
  3. ECE 5722 Embedded Core Architectures and Core-based Design
  4. ECE 5723 Methodologies for System Level Design and Modeling

Degree Completion

Students must complete the requirements for the online graduate certificate program four years from the date of admission into the program.
