When you tell someone that you are a plumbing designer or engineer they surprised and give you a strange look. What exactly is a plumbing designer or a plumbing engineer? Today we are provided with an amazing opportunity to protect the health and welfare of the public through properly designing the plumbing systems being installed in our homes, schools, business and health-care facilities.  Of all the trades, mechanical, electrical and plumbing, plumbing design is the only trade that is essential for life, providing clean drinking water and removal of waste water from our buildings. During this introductory class students will start the design process by reviewing and designing storm drainage systems, natural gas systems, domestic cold and hot water systems and sanitary sewer systems, along with reviewing how to properly coordinate these utilities with the architects and structural engineers.
