    ASCE's new Water Treatment Certificate Program is designed for the practicing engineer. This program will take your water resources career to the next level. Learn how to use the technology to make drinking water from groundwater, lakes, rivers, streams, oceans, stormwater, and wastewater reuse to all the planning aspects required to lay the groundwork for a new water treatment plan.

    Suggested Pre-Requisites:

    • Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering

    How It Works

    • 5 Guided Online Courses are required to complete this certificate program.
    • Complete all 5 Guided Online Courses within 4 years from enrollment.
