Google professional certificates program

Columbia Engineering is working alongside Google to prepare learners for high-growth career opportunities through our Construction Management specialization that builds on the Google Project Management Certificate.

Google and Columbia Engineering have joined forces to design a training program to provide learners with the skills and expertise they need to land jobs in high-growth industries. The Google professional certificates program helps learners acquire professional skills for in-demand jobs, while Specializations are university-built learning programs that can be used to gain additional expertise when applying Google Professional Certificate skills in a particular industry. Once you’ve completed both programs, you’ll automatically receive a dual badge of completion from Google and Columbia. Prepare for jobs in the high-growth industry of construction.
