Small class sizes and adjunct faculty with real-world experience contribute to student success. We offer a variety of degrees including a Bachelor's degree, Associate's degree, and several certificates. No matter your career choice; environmental work, water conservation, water treatment, wastewater treatment, or distribution systems, we've got you covered.
