CE 370: Introduction to Environmental Engineering
This course introduces current topics and fundamental concepts in Environmental Engineering. The goals are to: (1) offer a broad picture view of contemporary environmental issues; (2) equip students with conceptual framework and “toolsets” to quantitatively evaluate and discuss environmental issues; (3) provide students with resources necessary to develop a personalized answer to the question: “What role will environmental issues play in my personal and professional lives?”
CE 475: Water Quality Chemistry
Apply chemical principles to understand water quality, drinking water treatment, and wastewater treatment. Apply basic analytical chemistry principles to understand to measure natural water and wastewater constituents.
CE 574: Reactive Transport in Natural Environments
This course teaches principles and quantification of flow, transport, and reaction processes in surface water and groundwater systems. The course targets students from a range of disciplines where water-mineral-microbe interactions play a key role. This includes, but not limited to, environmental engineering, water resources, geosciences, petroleum and natural gas engineering, climate change sciences, agricultural engineering, civil engineering, chemical engineering, and applied mathematics. The course teaches fundamental concepts and quantitative formulation of hydrological and biogeochemical processes. Compared to other courses that focus mostly on reaction thermodynamics and kinetics, this course has a strong quantitative component. In addition to developing fundamental understanding, interested students also learn to use quantification and visualization tools for understanding multi-component reactive transport processes.
