Reliability and Maintainability Engineering
Students can earn a Graduate Certificate in Reliability and Maintainability Engineering (RME) by completing four graduate engineering courses (3 credits each).
The four courses consist of two core courses:
- Introduction to Reliability Engineering (CBE/IE/ME/MSE/NE 483)
- Introduction to Maintenance Engineering (CBE/IE/ME/MSE/NE 484)
And two elective courses selected from the following list:
- Random Process Theory for Engineers (ECE 504)
- Statistical Methods in Industrial Engineering (IE 516)*
- Reliability of Lean Systems (IE 517)*
- Optimization Methods in Industrial Engineering (IE 522)
- Mechanical Vibrations (ME/BME/ES 534)*
- Mechanical Behavior of Materials (MSE 421)
- Corrosion in Nuclear Power Systems (NE 441)
- Equipment and System Prognostics (NE 575)*
- Empirical Models for Monitoring and Diagnostic (NE 579)*
- Process System Reliability and Safety (CBE/NE 585)*
- Introduction to Mathematical Statistics (STAT 560)*
- Survival Analysis (STAT 367)*
