students interested in sustainable development and natural resource
management with the technical skills to serve as specialists in the analysis
of land and in the preparation of LID recommendations. Graduates will be
prepared for a growing number of careers in the public and private sector that require an understanding of geospatial technology, drafting, and the principles and practices of LID. The POS requires a multidisciplinary core of coursework including the study of land planning software programs, soils, site analysis,hydrology, geospatial technology, and environmental regulations.

and utilize plans for site development, storm and gray water treatment, and
landscape restoration projects. Graduates will be able to successfully serve as liaisons between landscape architects and engineers and the construction companies implementing designs. Graduates will also be well versed in local and
regional permitting issues and environmental concerns present and future.
