Applied Global StabilityGraduate Certificates

Water Resources

The graduate certificate: Applied Global Stability: Water Resources concentrates on water resources planning and management, engineering hydrology, and irrigation systems.

Several of the engineering courses below require a background in hydrology (CIVE 322 Basic Hydrology) and fluid mechanics (CIVE 300 Fluid Mechanics). Students are expected to have completed the appropriate course prerequisites, including calculus, ordinary differential equations, calculus-based physics, and engineering statics. Please contact the instructor if you have questions about whether your previous training is sufficient for you to succeed in this certificate program.

Courses that do not require prerequisites include: CIVE 574 Civil Engineering Project Management, CIVE 576 Engineering Applications of GIS and GPS; WR 511 Water Resource Development; WR 512 Water Law for Non-Lawyers.

You must be admitted to this program for the certificate to appear on your official university transcript.

Required course

If you have previously completed GES 520 for a different graduate certificate, you may substitute another School of Global Environmental Sustainability-endorsed graduate course chosen in consultation with the certificate advisor.

Select 9 credits from the following 3-credit courses:

Note: This certificate may have courses in common with other graduate certificates. A student may earn more than one certificate, but a given course may count toward only one certificate. Credit only allowed for CIVE 544 or WR 511, not both.

Additional courses may be listed in the catalog for this certificate, but may only be available on-campus.
