The Graduate Certificate in Engineering is a 12-credit graduate-level advanced certificate program that merges the benefits of technical engineering courses with professional development classes. The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering offers a Graduate Certificate in Contaminated Site Remediation and Bridge Engineering. Advanced certificate programs are perfect for those who are employed full time as practicing engineers, as well as for those interested in expanding their skills before entering industry.
The Contaminated Site Remediation Certificate will train you to use appropriate tools and techniques for the planning and design of site investigations and waste containment systems. Students will understand physical, chemical, and biological processes governing contaminant fate and behavior in the subsurface. Students will apply the fundamental physical, chemical, and biological principles of soil and groundwater treatment methods to design comprehensive remediation strategies for contaminated sites.
