Manufacturing Engineering (GC)

Now Enrolling: Winter 2022

Technical Skills for Future Innovations

RPI__039(1)Do you have the technical skills needed to participate in future innovation at RTX? Equip yourself with the knowledge and expertise RTX senior management is looking for with the WPI Manufacturing Engineering Graduate Certificate, co-designed by WPI professors and RTX Senior Fellows. The online graduate certificate is custom-designed to provide you with the most current information about manufacturing best-practices. In addition, you’ll learn how to process materials used at RTX, and the processes used by RTX partners, to help you become more efficient in maintaining and meeting standards.

This is WPI’s 11th cohort of this certificate with RTX. All four courses roll into a Master’s degree in either Manufacturing Engineering or Materials Science Engineering.

For employees who do not currently have a Master’s Degree, the Graduate Certificate is a great way to get started.
