  Water Science Curriculum

Water Science offers a two-semester water resource management curriculum for second year technical students or undergraduates in water resource management, water science, or environmental resource management programs. Water Science is divided into 6 major units. Each unit is divided into modules encompassing approximately a week’s worth of lectures and labs.

The lectures are presented as Microsoft © PowerPoint files with some supporting materials as Adobe PDF or Microsoft © Word documents.
