A new educational partnership at the University of Colorado Boulder will provide expanded degree options for working professionals interested in specialized graduate education focused on energy and water.
Beginning this fall, qualified students can earn both a Master of Engineering (ME) degree and a Professional Certificate in Renewable and Sustainable Energy or a Professional Certificate in Water Engineering and Management. The degree and certificates can be earned either via distance education or in campus classes and may be pursued either part- or full-time.
The increasing importance of sustainability and renewability has resulted in a necessary coupling of energy and water. Energy is crucial for water processes, and water plays a key role in producing energy. CU-Boulder is responding to a growing need for professionals with cutting-edge skills in the water and energy industries and increasing demand for graduate-level courses in these fields.
