Professional Engineering Outreach

cee-railroad_big_data_conference-121516-099The Engineering Outreach Program offers several professional development opportunities, including workshops, graduate courses, and continuing adult education certificates.

The dynamic and competitive nature of engineering demands that today’s engineering professionals invest in keeping skills current or developing completely new engineering and business competencies. Various states have instituted professional development hour requirements for renewal of the professional engineer license as well. The Engineering Outreach Program at the University of Delaware offers a variety of resources to make such technical renewal convenient and accessible.

Scheduling of graduate engineering courses at “professionally convenient” times on the Newark campus and/or in various distance formats (web-based or DVD) is an important feature of Professional Engineering Outreach. Outreach staff work with leaders of the engineering community to develop non-credit short courses to address specific needs as well as leading-edge technology conferences. When appropriate, arrangements are also made to deliver courses to company worksites.
