Certificate of Study in Airworthiness Engineering

The Certificate of Study in Airworthiness Engineering (CSAE) is a unique graduate-level program focused on the science and regulatory causalities of airworthiness engineering for air-system lifecycle certification. The program concentrates on different technical and regulatory aspects of achieving and sustaining airworthiness for an air-system. The curriculum is structured to address the aerospace professional and students alike on the educational needs regarding the principles of airworthiness engineering, especially those who are engaged in the design, development, certification, production, operation, and maintenance of air-systems - either manned and unmanned.

The CSAE program consists of 4 courses, all of which must be taken in cohort form, in sequence, and may not be separately taken. New cohorts begin each Spring term. The program is offered in blended delivery format using both synchronous Face–To–Face (FTF) and web-based instruction modalities. Upon successful completion of each course, earned graduate credit is recorded on an official transcript.  Certificate credit, which serves as the core requirement for the MSAWE degree program may additionally be applied toward other master’s degrees, if the recipients so choose. The CSAE requires the successful completion of all 4 courses, 12 credits, extending over a 15-month-long period.
