Program Description

Post baccalaureate studies and training provide excellent opportunities for practicing engineers and other environmental professionals to stay abreast of new technologies and current government regulations. Our Certificate program offers graduate level course work with the benefit of more in-depth study than offered in short courses and workshops. The certificate program offers a formal certification of your completion of the program. This certificate program is a mixture of face-to-face and distance education courses allowing you to mix and match courses reflecting your interests and learning style.

With our certificate program, you can formally certify competency in environmental engineering with an emphasis on watershed management and restoration. Although not a graduate degree, this Graduate Certificate Program may satisfy many of your needs for professional development. Should you later decide that a formal graduate degree best suits your needs, then some course work from this program may transfer. However, successful completion of this program does not guarantee admission to a graduate degree program.
