    Description:

    These courses cover such topics as accident photography, perspective grid mapping of evidence, technical accident investigation, accident reconstruction, computer-assisted traffic accident reconstruction, and other topics. Modified versions of the above training programs are available for insurance investigation, fleet safety personnel, traffic engineers, and attorneys. Training is also available for police officers and civilians in motorcycle operation. For police officers, a 10-day certified skill course is available, along with a three-day recertification and a two-day advanced course. A four-day basic and advanced course is also available for non-police personnel. All of the courses identified above are offered on-campus and other locations throughout the State of Michigan.

  • Electrical Apprenticeship Online Program

    Description:

    The Online Electrical Apprenticeship program is a four year program registered with the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Apprenticeship and Training. Upon successful completion of the program, graduates are awarded a certificate of completion by Michigan State University.

    This program provides the Related Technical Instruction (RTI) required by the State of Michigan through the revisions of implementation Public Act 217 of 1954, Rule 338.88e. It gives the apprentice the necessary theoretical and technical knowledge needed to become a successful journey person. It also gives additional practice of job-related skills and knowledge. The USDOL standards require that a minimum of 144 hours per year of apprenticeship training is to be provided to each trainee.

  • Electrical Technology Apprenticeship Training Certificate Program

    Location:

    Agriculture Hall, Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan.

    Description:

    This training program covers commercial, farm, residential, and light industrial wiring. Students study the latest National Electrical Code, electrical fundamentals and solid state electronic applications in agriculture, housing, and industry. Advanced technical training is important for a successful career as an electrician in agriculture and industry. Training includes residential, commercial, farm and industrial wiring with an emphasis on control system design, motor operation and application, solid state electronics, personal computer operations, and lighting design. A certificate is granted upon completion of the program requirements.

  • Foundations in Chemical Engineering (Online Courses and Bridging Program)

    Description:

    The Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science offers Foundations in Chemical Engineering online courses and a bridging program.  Two courses are offered:

    • CHE 804, Foundations in Chemical Engineering I
    • CHE 805, Foundations in Chemical Engineering II

    The courses cover the key concepts from the chemical engineering undergraduate curriculum, including fundamentals of material and energy balances, thermodynamics, chemical reaction engineering, fluid flow and heat transfer, and mass transfer and separations. The courses can be used in either of two ways:

    • Taken individually, these courses are designed for scientists and engineers from disciplines other than chemical engineering who want to pursue graduate degrees in the latter field or who need to incorporate techniques and information from that field into their career. Because of its cross-disciplinary characteristics, chemical engineering offers exciting job opportunities for those who combine preparation in that field with a background in other fields of science and engineering. Environmental engineers, chemists, biochemists, mechanical engineers, agricultural engineers, and food scientists are some of the professionals who have taken these courses to enhance their own technical backgrounds. Satisfactory performance in ChE804/ChE805 is recognized with a Certificate of Completion in Foundations of Chemical Engineering for each course.
    • The courses also provide a Bridging Program into a chemical engineering M.S. or PhD. degree program for students who have a non-chemical engineering B.S. degree. The courses provide sufficient background to prepare students to enter a graduate chemical engineering degree program. Participants are expected to have completed coursework in calculus, physics, physical chemistry, and organic chemistry.

    These courses are used by MSU, and other chemical engineering departments as the core of a bridging program. Contact the graduate student recruiter at the school of your choice to discuss plans to use the MSU bridging program.

    Location:

    Various locations

    Description:

    This comprehensive course for the railway industry (operating companies, suppliers and shippers) is designed for employees that show potential for professional growth and increased management capabilities to middle and upper management levels.  Content is predominantly focused on the needs of managers rather than operators or engineers.  The course was developed and evaluated by MSU Railway Management Program staff, working closely with Class I and Class II railroad education and training directors, as well as the AAR, ASL&RRA, and FRA decision makers, and other transportation industry leaders.  Content is regularly updated to include topical items impacting the railway industry.  The program consists of four weeks’ content that covers the breadth of today’s railway industry.  Lecture-style presentations, from distinguished MSU professors and recognized industry subject matter experts, are balanced with field visits to rail and associated sites to help put the conceptual and classroom sessions into practice.
