Whether you complete our in-person or online program, you will receive the very best training in brewing science and brewery engineering from experts in their respective fields. These certificates provide an in-depth understanding of brewing science and brewery engineering through professional-level equivalents of UC Davis degree-program courses. Previous professional brewing experience is not required. Program curriculum and prerequisites are the same for both.
