This graduate certificate is intended to enable the engineer and civic planner to take the lead in this management through hazard identification, qualification, quantification and scenario development. For this, the Engineering Risk and Emergency Management Certificate is earned through 4 courses that cover a range of materials ranging from principles of emergency management, environmental risk assessments and impacts statements, tools for risk assessment, decision management processes and applying a risk perspectives to fields such as costs estimating.

The certificate consists of four, 3 credit courses.
