Our program takes just one year to complete, and focuses on a systems-based approach to managing water resources for societal benefit. You learn principles of water movement through the environment and understand how to best utilize it for municipal and industrial uses, agriculture, and natural ecosystems. You also solve practical problems in hydrology; fluid mechanics; environmental flows in rivers, lake, and coastal environments; and water resource management.
Build the expertise to analyze and design systems that control all aspects of the distribution of water to meet the needs of humans and improve natural resource management. You also analyze and solve scientific and engineering questions through field methods, laboratory experiments, remote-sensing techniques, numerical and statistical modeling, and analytic approaches.
With the Civil and Environmental Engineering - Water Resources Engineering program at University of Wisconsin Madison, you develop strong quantitative skills in modeling, systems thinking, and sustainability science. Graduate ready to succeed in consulting firms, federal and state laboratories and agencies, and municipal and county governments, and place yourself at the forefront of rapidly developing and world-changing innovations.
