Energy Air, Land and Water Management Concentration

Air Land and Water Management

The Energy Air, Land and Water Management concentration is designed to position graduates for long-term competitive success in the sustained stewardship of energy, land, and water.  There are excellent career opportunities with private energy companies, government agencies, foundations, and as independent consultants.

Air, Land and Water Stewardship

The comprehensive development and management of energy resources is dependent upon the sustained stewardship of air, land and water.  For example, reclamation and restoration of coal production areas is very sophisticated and is one of the success stories of modern energy production.  Oil, gas, wind, solar, uranium and other energy asset production also require careful consideration of environmental impacts on the complex interactions between flora, fauna, and the physical environment.  The energy-land-water interconnection is not only important in traditional energy development and management, it is absolutely vital in new 21st century processes.  Effective and environmentally sound application of emerging technologies such as hydraulic fracturing, CO2 storage, carbon conversion technologies, and in wind and solar farm placement and operations begin with consideration of land and water resources.

Today and in the future, specialists in energy land and water management will be central figures in all management phases of energy exploration and development.  This option is designed to meet workforce demands and provide a multi-disciplinary perspective so crucial in effective decision-making.
