Certificate in Engineering Leadership – AECERLEAD

Leadership education is about learning how to effectively handle complex, human challenges that often mean the difference between success and failure. Engineers are taught to think analytically and systematically. Leadership skills build on these strengths to make you a more effective engineer. More than just important, they are critical.

This certificate recognizes a demonstrated focus in leadership courses provided by the Institute for Leadership Education in Engineering in the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering.
