This certificate is designed for geoengineers either presently working or planning to work in the state of Arizona. It will provide a basic understanding of geoengineering issues and the current design practice in Arizona, and can supplement an existing undergraduate or Master’s degree. All courses in this degree program will be taught online through the University’s Desire to Learn (D2L) website.
Students who successfully complete the Arizona Geoengineering Certificate will have an understanding of specific geoengineering issues in the state of Arizona and can advance on to Master of Science and/or Master of Engineering programs. To qualify for this certificate program, applicants must have a Bachelor’s degree in engineering or related science and must meet the course pre-requisites for the courses in the certificate.
The College of Engineering was founded when the University of Arizona opened its doors in 1885. Mining was the bedrock of Arizona’s economy at that time, and educating mining engineers was a top priority – indeed, it still is.
As the state’s economy grew and diversified, the College of Engineering continued to play a pivotal role in providing the research and engineering expertise necessary for that growth.
In today’s competitive environment, graduates of the college are the entrepreneurs developing high-tech companies that are creating jobs and improving our quality of life.
An engineering education will provide the research to build new industries and the knowledge for those who run them.
