 Cuyamaca College's Water & Wastewater Technology Program is changing its name to the "CENTER for WATER STUDIES".  In Web Advisor, search for classes using the new name, Cntr for Water Studies or Center for Water Studies.

As we transition into our new "Center for Water Studies" program name change, there will be some changes to course designations and course numbers.  Instead of "WWTR" designations, all courses will be designated as "CWS".  Some courses will have the same number, but some course numbers will change.  All courses that have an entry level course and an advanced level course will use a new sequential number designation.  For example, instead of WWTR 130/265, the new designation and number will be CWS 130/230.

Cuyamaca's innovative Center for Water Studies Program provides pre-employment training as well as advanced courses in water and wastewater technology for those wishing career advancement.  We are adding "hands-on learning opportunities" to many of our courses, and adding new advanced courses in many disciplines.

Courses prepare students for certification examinations administered by the State of California as well as those administered by professional associations within the water and wastewater industry.

Current instructors are experienced water and wastewater professionals, expert and up-to-date in best-of-breed industry practices. Classes are built around practical examples of real-world scenarios, demonstrations, and field trips whenever possible to maximize understanding of subject matter. Internships are available, too.
