The graduate Safety Engineering Certificate program was developed to meet the ever-increasing importance of and need for engineers to be trained in the application and implementation of safety engineering concepts, principles and practices. The increasing presence of the oil and gas industry in the region, the increasing emphasis on world-wide nuclear energy, the increasing evidence of safety-related concerns and injuries in the healthcare industry and the sustained concern of safety engineering in construction, manufacturing and mining have fueled the interest in and implementation of this certificate program. The certificate is intended for engineers seeking training in safety engineering to enhance their operational abilities or if they become newly assigned to positions that have higher levels of safety engineering responsibilities. The certificate will also enhance the capabilities of non-engineering based safety professionals seeking training in safety engineering.  This certificate can be earned either on campus or online.
