The environmental management certificate equips you with tools to manage environmental problems.

The Stevens graduate certificate in Environmental Management equips students and professionals with tools and knowledge to manage environmental problems routinely faced by government, industry and community organizations. 

With skills in technical problem solving, scientific and policy communications, teamwork and project management, graduates of this certificate program are expected to avail the environmental management-related employment opportunities associated with their primary field of academic preparation. Environmental management jobs are currently in abundance in the tristate area because of the extensive nature of environmental degradation caused by the various industries that indiscriminately polluted the local environment for many decades resulting in the largest concentration of superfund sites per unit area in the entire nation.

Graduates of the program will have the ability to analyze environmental management problems that are routinely faced by government, industry and community organizations, which require a thorough understanding of the complex interrelationships between science, policy and management.

Who should consider this program?

Admission into the certificate program in Environmental Management requires an undergraduate degree in science, engineering, architecture, planning, business, social science, communications, law, policy or any other relevant discipline with a grade point average of "B" or better from an accredited college or university.

This certificate is a good option for early-career professionals in environmental fields who want formal training for career advancement. It is also helpful to those wishing to make a career change from any other field to environmental management.

This certificate is also a good option for students interested in learning more about the environmental aspects of sustainability but who do not wish to pursue the 30-credit Stevens Master's degree in Sustainability Management. Upperclassmen at Stevens Institute of Technology with interest in environmental management can also enroll in the certificate program with approval of the program director.
