Apa yang akan saya pelajari?

Clean water is a common topic discussed in many classrooms and research laboratories around this campus. Yet, the complexity of societal issues related to water shortages, hygiene, and quality, which influence water consumption and its role in human health, highlights the importance of increased interdisciplinary dialogue and problem-solving capabilities. The certificate reflects the acquisition of this interdisciplinary knowledge as related to “water and health.”

The IGEP is a non-degree granting program, thus students have a home department (i.e., that of their graduate advisor) with specific degree requirements. The water (WI IGEP) graduate certificate reflects the successful completion of the interdisciplinary coursework (including a 2 credit hour independent research project), which includes content related to four interdisciplinary research thematic areas:

Public Perception: public perception of technological options and advancements for providing clean water resources (water treatment);

Risks: risks (perceived or real) associated with contaminants and water-borne infectious diseases in private homes, public water systems, and commercial food processing facilities;

Chemistry: role of water chemistry (e.g., mineral composition) in delivering functional qualities such as flavor and bioavailable nutrients;

Health: role of water consumption in health, wellness, and mitigation of mineral deficiencies and diseases.

Course Requirements: Graduate Certificate In Interdisciplinary Water and Health Science

Students will increase knowledge, advocacy, and comprehension of the four thematic areas (public perception, risk, chemistry, health) through the required certificate coursework, in addition to completing the graduate degree requirements of their home department. Students will explore critical thinking of the thematic areas in literature reviews and meeting research objectives in their course discussions, research activities, and dissertations. The IGEP certificate courses are as follows:

CEE 5804, Engineering Ethics and the Public (3 cr.)

GRAD 5414, Water for Health Seminar (1 cr.)

GRAD 5134, Interdisciplinary Research: Water for Health (3 cr.)

GRAD 5974 (or from the mentor’s department), Independent Study (2 cr.)
