Management of Regulated River Systems
Track Advisor: Daniele Tonina, Civil Engineering (Boise)
Professionals trained in this PSM degree track will be able to work for a variety of agencies and firms in the West that specialize in aspects of regulated flowing water, especially including the major tributaries to the Columbia and Klamath Rivers.
Graduate course work will expand the opportunities available through the Ecohydraulics program in Boise, including courses in riparian ecology, river restoration, engineering hydrology, open channel hydraulics, fluid dynamics, sedimentation, aquatic habitat modeling, channel flow, water resources systems analysis, stochastic hydrology and fluvial geomorphology.
Students in this track will be trained for mid to upper range technical positions, and will be eligible for employment with industries and agencies that whose mission it is to manage regulated river systems, and consulting firms that provide technical support to these entities.
: At a minimum, students entering the program in this track are expected to have successfully completed at least nine (9) credits in calculus, three (3) credits in differential equations, three (3) credits in statistics for scientists/engineers, four (4) credits in chemistry, and six (6) credits total in physics or biology/ecology. Many of the courses offered for this track are civil engineering courses and require a more specific set of prerequisites.
