The Test and Evaluation Certificate Program (TECP) is a graduate level education program focused on the application of operational analysis techniques and methodology as applied to the Test and Evaluation (T & E) Community. The program provides an understanding of planning and analysis tools dedicated to supporting the evaluation of test data, test design, and results from test execution. Particular emphasis is given to incorporating past, present, and future DoD T & E examples from all aspects of test (developmental, operational, etc.) into the curriculum to tailor the applications of the methodology and approaches within each course. Current T & E focus in design of experiments (DOE) and reliability, maintainability, and availability (RM&A) analysis are addressed in required courses to complete the program.
The TECP includes courses that comprise the Applied Statistics specialty in the Graduate Operations Research in-resident Master’s degree program. The TECP is also a specialty area in the distance learning and in-residence Systems Engineering Master’s degree program.
