Graduate Certificate in Environmental Engineering

The graduate certificate in environmental engineering program is particularly appropriate for individuals interested in the areas of hazardous waste remediation and water/wastewater treatment. Students who complete the graduate certificate may opt to continue towards a master's degree in the civil and environmental engineering department. All courses completed by the student in the graduate certificate program with a grade of B or better can be transferred to the master's degree program. 

Specific admission requirements are shown on the Graduate Program Finder.

The following requirements must be fulfilled: 12 credits in one selected track, including 9 credits in required courses and a 3-credit elective course.
