Regulatory Science & Engineering

We are not currently accepting applications for the Regulatory Science & Engineering Graduate Certificate Program.

This is a Graduate Certificate in Engineering only program.

Created to support the needs of regulatory professionals and to complement research work being done by the Clark School of Engineering’s Center of Excellence in Regulatory Science and Innovation (CERSI), the Graduate Certificate in Engineering (GCEN) for Regulatory Science and Engineering course descriptions can be found on the Certificate link on the left column. 

CERSI is a collaborative partnership between the University of Maryland, College Park, and the University of Maryland, Baltimore. Researchers from both campuses work with FDA staff to support the development of new tools, standards and approaches to assess the safety, efficacy, quality and performance of FDA-regulated products. Through the CERSI, researchers, regulators and industry professionals can learn from one other in the effort to develop regulatory science and engineering practices that promote innovation in medical devices and pharmaceuticals, while also addressing critical safety and efficacy concerns.  See the CERSI website for detailed information -   To learn more about the University of Maryland, Baltimore's program in Regulatory Science related to pharmaceuticals please go to their website -

The GCEN in Regulatory Science and Engineering is part of the MPowering the State collaborative program as there is a sister program in Regulatory Science in the UMB School of Pharmacy that focuses on drug discovery, development and clinical research.  The Clark School of Engineering program focuses on medical devices with the goal to create a Professional Master of Engineering academic option in the next year as new curriculum is developed.
