Floodplain Management Course Series
We offer a Floodplain Management Course Series for students interested in specializing in this area of study. This blended classroom and online program features specific courses that focus on coastal and riverine floodplain management.
Students gain practical experience through a capstone project. The capstone is the culmination of your graduate degree, allowing you to synthesize what you’ve learned in the program, conduct research and apply it to a real-world problem. At the same time, you’ll build a network in a particular area of the infrastructure field.
