Engineered Plumbing Systems

What will I learn in this program?

The Certificate of Accomplishment in Engineered Plumbing Systems Program provides students with the necessary skills for employment with a mechanical engineering firm engaged in the design of engineered plumbing systems for residential, commercial, institutional, and industrial buildings.  The topics taught in the coursework are also those required to successfully complete the examination given by the American Society of Plumbing Engineers for their certification program.  This Certificate, therefore, makes an excellent review for the certification examination.
