About the Certificate
The graduate certificate in Stormwater Management requires 12 credits of coursework that foster the student's expertise in addressing the effects associated with stormwater management.

- an undergraduate engineering degree;
- educational or professional background in environmental science, geomorphology, hydrology or stormwater management; or
