This certificate is offered through the Chemical Engineering graduate program.
The educational objectives of the air quality certificate program are as follows:
- To prepare graduates for careers related to air quality
- To encourage interdisciplinary educational experiences in air quality
- To enhance the educational experiences of participating graduate students
The air quality program administrative office is the Institute for Environmental Research in Seaton Hall. This office will administer the air quality certificate program.
Students working toward advanced degrees should submit a proposed list of courses to be used to meet certification requirements to the director of the air quality program. Where these courses are included in a program of study for an advanced degree, they should be approved by the student’s supervisory committee and the coordinator of the air quality certificate program. A copy of the approved program should be distributed to the student, major professor, and the graduate school. A file is maintained for each student who is in the certificate program by the administrative office in the Institute for Environmental Research. Where some courses for the certificate program are not included in the advanced degree program of study, the course list should be approved by the major professor and the coordinator of the air quality certificate program. For example, the student may decide to complete the certificate program after the advanced degree program of study is already filed and nearly completed.
The air quality graduate education committee will review the air quality certificate program periodically, and they will have the authority to approve modifications to the approved list of courses.
