Civil and Environmental Engineering: Project Risk Analysis and Assessment Graduate Certificate


Project Risk Analysis and Assessment Track

All projects involve risk. Some risks can be mitigated through proper assessment, mitigation, and decision making, while others are more difficult to manage. This graduate certificate is intended for project managers and executives interested in understanding cutting edge tools and approaches for project risk analysis and assessment that incorporate a broad range of social, environmental, and economic indicators. You will learn a range of quantitative skills, computational tools, and approaches to support “go” or “no go” decision-making, project financing choices, and project risk mitigation.
