Help Preserve and Better Utilize Our World’s Water
Water appears as a vast resource. In fact, it covers most of the world’s surface area. Yet, only a small percentage is suitable for human consumption. Healthy water resources are precious.
Considering this, sustainability is an essential component of water resource management. Water resources engineers play a crucial role in analyzing these sources. These professionals develop the skills necessary to provide engineering solutions to secure water supplies for human and environmental uses under changing climate conditions.
Clarkson University’s water resources engineering professional concentration is open to Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering students. Students opting for this path graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering with a certificate of professional concentration in water resources engineering.
