Hazardous Waste Engineering (Certificate)
The Certificate in Hazardous Waste Engineering program is an introduction to the characterization of hazardous waste sites, common and innovative remediation techniques, and current issues in hazardous waste engineering.
Indoor Air Quality (Certificate)
The Certificate in Indoor Air Quality program covers sick building syndrome, the causes of indoor air pollution, and investigative and diagnostic techniques used in controlling indoor air quality.
Infrastructure Engineering and Management (Certificate)
Students in the Certificate in Infrastructure Engineering and Management program take at least four courses on topics such as public administration and public infrastructure management.
Public Works (Infrastructure Engineering and Management) (M.P.W.)
Gain knowledge for careers as public works managers, engineers, and planners, and understand the engineering principles to manage and protect infrastructure design, construction, and operations. Select electives within construction management, geotechnical engineering, public administration, structural engineering, and transportation engineering.
Structural Engineering (M.ENG.)
Learn how buildings and bridges are designed to resist forces imposed by external loads, gravity, wind, and earthquakes. Computer-aided design techniques and the latest national building codes dealing with steel, reinforced concrete, pre-stressed concrete, and masonry structures are treated.
Transportation Engineering (M.ENG.)
This program will prepare students to become qualified transportation planners, traffic engineers, and traffic safety engineers. Gain a better understanding of transportation systems management and systems analysis, while evaluating the socioeconomic impacts of transportation and infrastructure engineering projects.
Transportation Systems Planning (Certificate)
Students in the Certificate in Transportation Systems Planning program take a minimum of four courses on topics such as urban transportation planning, transportation systems management, and transportation systems evaluation.
