Certificate in Stormwater Management
Stormwater management has become a significant issue in recent years. Fundamentally, stormwater management is a both a hydrologic and ecologic problem. The certificate program in Stormwater Management at Temple University’s College of Engineering is designed to enhance the students’ skills in addressing these problems.
The primary goal of the program is to teach students fundamental concepts supporting the design of stormwater best management practices as well as fundamental concepts that describe why and how improper stormwater management causes such diverse and severe stream ecosystem degradation.
The Stormwater Management certificate program offers a course of study that teaches students fundamental concepts supporting the design of stormwater best management practices as well as fundamental concepts that describe why and how improper stormwater management causes such diverse and severe stream ecosystem degradations.
The four-course sequence will provide students with the basic understanding of the effects of urban stormwater runoff on stream channel morphology and ecology and the best management practices available to control both the quantity and quality of runoff.
The Graduate Certificate Program is designed for working professionals who desire to strengthen their knowledge in stormwater management. Students may transfer up to 9 semester hours of course work into the Master of Science in Environmental Engineering program or Ph.D. in Engineering program. All courses are offered in the evening and some are offered online.
Students are required to complete four courses selected from the list below.
|A. Required:||CE5641 Urban Streams and Stormwater Management|
|B. Choose one of the following:||CE5621 Engineering HydrologyCE5631 Environmental Hydrology|
|C. Choose two of the following:||CE5623 Near Surface Environmental SystemsCE5701 Physical Principles of Environmental Systems
CE5703 Mathematical Modeling
The GRE exam is not required for admission into the Stormwater Management certificate program. While the program is designed for applicants with an undergraduate engineering degree, those with a strong background in hydrology or environmental science may also be considered. Applicants with professional experience in civil or environmental engineering, stormwater management or land development are especially encouraged to apply.
