The water engineering and management (WE&M) graduate certificate provides an in-depth study of the tools demanded by the rigors of the water profession. Students can build non-technical competencies with courses on leadership, management, communication, finance and governance. The faculty consists primarily of senior water professionals from across the country.
The certificate is granted by the WE&M program, and the certificate courses listed count as electives toward the Civil Engineering - Master of Science (MS) degree or the Engineering Management - Master of Engineering (ME) degree.
Currently, WE&M students include young professionals working for utilities, consulting firms, government and regulatory agencies, and degree-seeking graduate students at CU Boulder.
Distance Education Option
Students can take individual courses toward a master's degree or graduate certificate through distance education (online). For more information, connect with the individual graduate program directly.
Three courses are required plus one elective course. The certificate is 12 credit hours in total.
