Graduate Certificate in Geoenvironmental Engineering

The graduate certificate in geoenvironmental engineering program is designed to provide the necessary background for civil engineers to practice in the field. The program offers an in-depth understanding of the issues that a geo-environmental engineer may encounter in practice. Students who successfully complete the certificate program 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.
