About Us

Case Western Reserve University is the premier academic institution in Northeast Ohio, and our division of Continuing Professional Studies (CPS) offers a full array of non-credit and certificate-based programs for working professionals through both open enrollment and customized industry-sponsored courses. We recognize that education for a successful career does not stop upon completion of a degree, but that retaining a competitive edge in one’s current career or transitioning to a new path demands a commitment to lifelong learning. 

Running the gamut from “soft” skills in communication and teamwork to advanced technical training in science and engineering, the CPS program connects our network of great researchers and industry experts with working adults in Northeast Ohio and beyond.  Our office notably works with some of the largest employers and advanced design and manufacturing firms in the country, and our team is prepared to develop specific educational opportunities to meet your needs.

The Case Western Reserve Siegal Lifelong Learning Office of Career Development Program is generously supported by the Romich Family Fund, a component fund of the Wayne County Community Foundation. We are also proud to feature The Ohio Aerospace Institute as a partner organization. 

“By working together, OAI and CWRU can help ensure that Ohio’s workforce is prepared to meet the needs of the American aerospace industry.”  — Michael L. Heil, PhD, PE, Retired President and CEO, Ohio Aerospace Institute (OAI)
