In support of AAWRE’s mission in ‘Elevating level of Standards’ – to broaden and deepen the body of knowledge for practicing engineers, AAWRE’s certification was developed to improve the practice, elevate the standards and advance the profession of water resources engineers. The D.WRE represents strong professional ethics and a commitment to life-long learning and continuing professional development. Since the start of AAWRE’s Diplomate, Water Resources Engineer (D.WRE) program in October 2004, only over 700 water resources engineers worldwide have qualified for the Diplomate, Water Resources Engineer credential.
