Program Details

The University of Florida’s Graduate Certificate in Advanced Manufacturing is available through the College of Engineering, and under the university’s EDGE Department. The Advanced Manufacturing Certificate is intended for working students and professionals who are interested in modern manufacturing techniques.

This program takes approximately one year to complete, and consists of a three course, or nine credit, sequence offered annually over the fall, spring, and summer semesters. The first course that students will take is the Fundamentals of Production Engineering. In this course, the production engineering aspects of manufacturing are considered and analytic and numerical methods are applied to gain a deeper understanding of process and machine behavior. The second course that students will take is Nontraditional Manufacturing, which explores the fundamentals of nontraditional manufacturing processes, improves the student’s ability to survey, understand, and present advanced knowledge in this area based on current trends.

The final course that students will take through this certificate program is Structural Dynamics of Production Machinery. The goal of this course is to apply mechanical vibrations, including modal techniques and beam theory, to the analysis of manufacturing equipment and processes. Through these courses, students may receive the required knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in this field.


Students must have a BS degree in Engineering, with minimum undergraduate GPA 3.0
