About the Program

The Technical Project Management (TPM) Certificate from The Citadel is designed for working professionals looking to further develop their career potential based on best-known practices and industry standards. Taught at the Lowcountry Graduate Center, the course content is targeted for junior and middle-level professionals and is designed to prepare managers for success in large complex projects – focusing on professional development within a technical, academic, industry-related environment.

The certificate is comprised of a series of four graduate courses (12 credit hours in total) developed to help broaden the knowledge, skills, and abilities of a project manager. The timeline for completion of the program is determined by the term course load for each individual student, but can typically be completed in two semesters.
