Motorsports Engineering Technology Certificates

There are two options available to students to add a certificate in Motorsports Engineering Technology. One option is for students majoring in Mechanical Engineering Technology and the second option is for students majoring in Electrical or Computer Engineering Technology. Students interested in this certificate that are not currently in one of these majors should check with an advisor to see if the courses will work in your plan of study. These certificates are also designed to be stand-alone and not required to be attached to a bachelor's degree program.
