Penn State's 9-credit online electrical engineering postbaccalaureate program offers a broad range of courses to help you expand your knowledge base or focus on a specific interest. All courses in this self-paced program are delivered asynchronously, meaning you are not required to log in at a particular time, but must meet weekly deadlines. You can complete your graduate certificate online on a part-time basis.
