Certificate in Transmission & Distribution

power lines

Gonzaga's certificate program offers cutting-edge training in an affordable program that typically takes one year to complete.

We encourage students to begin with the certificate for these reasons:

  • Faster Registration - apply as a non-matriculated student.
  • All classes for the Certificate apply to the Master's.
  • Having the certificate waives certain Master's application requirements.

Note: earning the certificate does not guarantee admission to the Master's program. Credits from other programs are NOT transferable to the certificate.


  • The certificate consists of any five (5) TADP 3-credit courses. These eight-week courses are offered online by industry leaders and Gonzaga University engineering faculty.
  • Any TADP courses are eligible for the certificate. We encourage students to take courses which best fit their professional needs.
  • Certificate requires a cumulative 3.0 GPA.
  • All classes are taught online in eight-week modules. Each course requires between 15-20 hours of presentations, readings, assignments and discussion board work per week. For this reason, students should only schedule one course per session.

Certificate Pre-Requisites

  • B.S. Degree in Civil, Mechanical, Electrical or other engineering field recommended.
  • Employment in electric utility or related industry recommended.
