Environmental Science & Resource Management: Environmental Technologies Certificate - 18 units

We are on the cusp of an amazing era of change for our society and planet; the opening millennium of the Anthropocene and the opening century of the Earth’s sixth mass extinction event.  At the same time, we are in the midst of the fourth industrial revolution which has helped birth a new era of robotic instruments, individualized manufacturing, the open source movement, and crowd sourcing.  Students interested in both of these threads can complete our Environmental Technologies Certificate and work to harness some of these new technologies to help begin to respond to the daunting challenge of these cumulative threats to our biosphere. This program leverages a deep network of experts, exponential science and technology, and entrepreneurship to help bring new conservation innovations to scale and to provide novel and cost-effective data to managers on the front lines of our resource challenges.  Graduates will be extremely qualified for positions as entry-level field technicians, aerial and underwater drone pilots, sales, and program managers in both private and public sectors.
