In the Environmental Management Certificate program, graduate students from across the University collaborate to tackle real-world problems with profound business, policy, scientific, and engineering ramifications.
Students engage in environmental challenges—including energy, climate change, natural resources management, and pollution—and learn to organize collaborative teams to complete a client-based project. The program spans traditional academic boundaries, allowing students to integrate broad perspectives, knowledge, skills, and interconnections.
