Water Quality Management Technology

Water is critical to life and trained professionals create a more sustainable water future. The Water Quality Management (WQM) program trains people to solve the mounting global water crisis.

WQM is for those who want to make a positive impact on their world while developing valuable job-ready skills. We are housed in a state of the art facility,  The Environmental Training Center (ETC), which boasts numerous hands-on learning laboratories. Here you will find staff dedicated to career counseling, tutoring, and subject specific advising. 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.

Mission Statement:

The mission of the Water Quality Management Technology program is to prepare students for successful employment in the diverse water industry by providing hands-on, active, and applied curriculum created with industry partners. The Water Quality Management (WQM) Department periodically hosts events and info sessions as an interactive way to provide information to students about the WQM program.
