Student Profile
William C. Jackson, Ph.D
Chief Systems Engineer, Space Systems Group,
Sierra Nevada Corporation
I recently read an article from the IEEE that estimated the average half-life
of an engineering degree to be less than five years. That means that five
years after your undergraduate engineering degree, half of your knowledge
will be obsolete or in need of serious updating. As a practicing engineer,
if you want to remain current in your field, then you must continually be updating your knowledge
base and acquiring new skills. If you do not, then you risk being vulnerable in a very competitive
environment. Also, for me personally, my engineering career is more than just a job – it is the
manifestation of a life-long passion for learning and creativity. To date I have completed three
UCSD Extension certificate programs, and am presently working on a fourth. This not only keeps
my engineering skills current, but also makes me more valuable to my employer. The quality of
the instruction and course content is excellent, and some of the courses I have taken far surpass
anything I have previously taken at the undergraduate or graduate level at other universities.
I highly recommend the UCSD Extension program for all practicing engineers

Geographical Information
Systems
HVAC Systems Design and
Control
Geographical Information Systems (GIS) is a
relatively broad term that can refer to a number of different technologies, processes, and
methods. It is attached to many operations
and has many applications related to engineering, planning, management, transport/logistics,
insurance, telecommunications, and business.
For that reason, GIS and location intelligence
applications can be the foundation for many
location-enabled services that rely on analysis,
visualization and dissemination of results for
collaborative decision making.
There is booming application of these technologies. They range from simple GIS systems
embedded in most mobile devices to applications in engineering, planning, public health,
demographics, environmental and conservation, transport/logistics, insurance, law enforcement, telecommunications, marketing, and
multiple other business applications.
The GIS certficate will teach students the theoretical underpinnings of GIS in order to make
informed use of existing GIS applications and
gain skills needed to construct new applications
in the physical or social realms. The full range
of GIS capabilities is covered, including data
capture, analysis, modeling and cartographic
representation. The skills gained will be highly
practical with good, hands on, understanding of
the software used in GIS. In addition, we will
provide the students with a project of interest to
them or their employers once they master basic
concepts and tools used in GIS.
This program provides a focused, concentrated
study of theory, governing codes, calculation,
and practical applications of heating, ventilating,
and air conditioning systems.Recommended for
the professional advancement of HVAC designers and engineers, recent graduate engineers,
facility engineers, or for anyone involved with

Lean Enterprise
Lean Six Sigma Black Belt
Power Systems Engineering
Lean can be defined as “performance without
waste.” Many organizations waste 70-90% of
available resources through improper management of materials, time, information, equipment and inventory.
This 15-week, one-day per week program presents Lean Enterprise principles and practices.
Class projects provide students with experience
implementing all the necessary steps to achieve
successful results in various business functions
and operations. Classroom lecture is complemented by local plant tours, and case studies of World Class Manufacturing companies.
Program projects allow the benefits of these
techniques to be applied in the student’s own
company. Through these experiences students
will discover how the implementation of Lean
Techniques can include dramatic improvements
in cycle-time, products costs, inventory reduction and new product lead-time.
The program is appropriate for any team or
individual responsible for managing or participating in manufacturing activities. Appropriate
participants would include managers, professionals and hands-on line staff in key functional areas such as operations, production and
inventory control, development, manufacturing, quality assurance, and supplier management. The diverse participant industries provide
for cross-industry learning and application of
principles, as well as identification of World
Class Manufacturing best practices. Industries
represented include: Electronics, computers,
telecommunications, medical devices, fabricated metal and machining, plastic, chemical,
pharmaceutical, food and beverage.
Further Reading:
Lean Six Sigma is a set of tools, techniques and
operating principles that represents the best of
practices in quality and process improvement
resulting in improved performance and reduced
costs.
This intensive 12-week program develops
understanding and enables application of
proven approaches to maximizing productivity
through understanding process requirements,
identifying constraints and creating flow.
Students will be provided with the established
Lean Six Sigma body of knowledge, the experience to implement it in the workplace through
a group project and the credentials to be a Lean
Six Sigma leader within their organization.
Classroom instruction and student projects are
organized to allow structured implementation
of Lean Six Sigma, resulting in a projected ROI
of $100K.
Further Reading:
Power engineering, also called power systems
engineering, is a subfield of energy engineering
that deals with the generation, transmission,
distribution and utilization of electric power and
the electrical devices connected to such systems
including generators, motors and transformers.
Therefore, power systems engineering is a broad
term that includes electric power generation
transmission and utilities delivery and management to all users at all times.
Traditionally, power engineers are responsible
for maintaining a network of components which
convert different forms of energy into electricity
and for managing any of the three main subsystems of power engineering: the generation
subsystem, the transmission subsystem, or the
distribution subsystem.
The engineers are also responsible for the electrical devices that are attached to these systems.
Power engineers’ duties typically include making
sure that all the devices are functioning properly
and that they meet safety regulations.
In recent times, the use of renewable sources of
energy has provided new impetus to the fields
with the design and development of renewable,
energy efficient power grids and utility systems.
Engineers must research and implement ways
to integrate renewable power technology and
are often involved in public works projects, and
employed on federal projects that involve the
integration of large power grids.
This certificate will teach the building blocks of
the power system, its control and management.
Designed for those with minimal experience
with electric power, participants will be able
to speak the language and perform substantial
tasks within the electric grid and power system
network.
