Low Impact Land Development


About the Program

The Low Impact Land Development/Sustainable Construction certificate is a two-semester program that addresses the following: principles of low impact development including best management practices (BMP) for development conservation, impact and control of storm water runoff and non-point source pollution, computer design for residential and commercial land use applications, concepts of holistic construction, alternative transportation options, water conservation, environmental building design, and the LEED rating system for the civil engineering aspects of project development.

Students are eligible to enroll in the Low Impact Land Development Certificate Program only after the basic Civil Engineering Technology entry requirements are completed (the same requirements to enter the CET degree program), and any prerequisites for the individual courses within the certificate program are met. The certificate will meet the needs of students seeking to acquire a basic introduction and understanding of the fundamentals of low impact residential and commercial development and as well as those seeking a degree in Civil Engineering Technology.

Certificate curricula are reviewed and updated periodically in response to community and industry demands. The student is cautioned to discuss certificate choices and course selections with an Engineering Advisor before each registration cycle.

Learning experiences for students in Engineering Technology programs are provided at the Northeast Campus in classrooms and state-of-the-art labs in the Engineering Technology and Science Classroom Building.
