    The same way there are Solidworks certificates and foreign language ones, are there any certificates that say you are proficient in some area of engineering?Say you have a bachelors' in Electrical and Electronic Engineering but you also decide to take an exam and get a Level 1 certificate in Renewable Energy (just made it up). That would make for a decent CV supplement. Is there anything like that out there?

    Your uni might run courses in certain industry programming suites like Matlab and Labview, I guess that would count. Otherwise getting involved in relevant societies should help show your abilities.

    This is a good question. I remember my university running a Labview course where we would get a certificate from.

    You could also do something like Solidworks, but you'd probably have to pay for that, or a Six Sigma Green Belt.

    I'm not sure how much value this will really add to a graduate CV, though.
Have you ever experienced racism/sexism at uni?
