The environmental debate has attracted widespread attention among policy-makers and the general public as evidenced by headlines in the newspapers. Strict new environmental regulations have created a need for managers with an understanding of environmental issues. Environmental quality is inextricably linked with energy consumption. Automobiles, power plants, and furnaces release pollutants as products of combustion. Coal, oil, and gas resources can not be developed without careful consideration of the environmental impacts. Therefore, the focus of the energy field has broadened to include more environmental issues. This 18-credit Advanced Certificate in Environmental Management explores the technical, economic, and regulatory frameworks of environmental protection and conservation.
