Environmental Engineering Technology—Stormwater Management Major (EVTS)

Description

The Environmental Engineering Technology - Stormwater Management Major prepares students to apply emerging technologies related to stormwater control. As water quality regulations become more stringent, environmental engineers and technicians must gain knowledge of stormwater management practices, including methods for targeting specific pollutants in order to maximize benefits to the watershed.

Graduates earn an Associate of Applied Science degree. Courses focus on environmental mapping, watershed management, stormwater management technologies, and restoration ecology. The program also stresses effectively applying various stormwater management practices.
