In the agriculturally centered Central Valley of California, water resources are overextended, highly dependent on natural climate variability, and increasingly affected by anthropogenic climate change and adaptation to these changes. These challenges in the Central Valley are a microcosm of growing national and international concerns as similar processes are occurring worldwide.  

Fresno State is a leader in water technology with three water research centers on campus.  This program will provide students with a degree that will address water management at an advanced level.
