University of Massachusetts Graduate Degree Program

In 2010, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Northeast Region Fisheries Program and the University of Massachusetts-Amherst jointly unveiled a new Fish Passage Engineering and Ecohydrology (FPE&EH) graduate degree option at UMass’ Amherst campus.  Administered through UMass’ Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, the program prepares civil engineering students for a career in fish passage technologies and related interdisciplinary topics at the notional interface of hydrology and ecology which support, enhance, and protect fisheries resources and their habitats.  The core curriculum of this engineering degree concentration includes two new graduate-level courses in Fish Passage Engineering.  Through a cooperative agreement with the university, these courses are taught by members of the Fish Passage Engineering Team and augmented with guest lectures by regional and national experts in the field.
