Course Descriptions and Syllabi

Select the course you are interested in knowing more about and click on it. The description will include credit hours and any applicable prerequisites or co-requisites.

Some of the EVE courses are stacked with courses from CET/EET/MET; this means that students will be doing a majority of the same work under either course listing but maybe required to do additional work as well. The EVE class is not the same as the CET/MET/EET class. It is recommended that if you are interested in EVE you register for the EVE section of the class. Please contact your advisor with any questions.


Credits: 3 (3+0)

Prerequisite(s): CHE 1800, CHE 1811, MTH 2410, ENV 1200

Description: In this course students are introduced to the interaction between humans, their activities, and the environment around us. Over the course of the semester, they will explore anthropogenic and natural effects on air and water quality, how these systems operate and the application of applied sciences (e.g., physics, chemistry, and biology) to the natural world. Students are presented with the major environmental challenges through case studies.

Syllabus

Credits: 3 (3+0)

Prerequisite(s): Junior standing or permission of instructor

 

Stacked With: CET 3320

Description: In this course students will study the physical and legal requirements of the environmental impact statement process. Students will research and document case studies on environmental impact statement.

Syllabus

Credits: 3 (3+0)

Prerequisite(s): ENV 1200 or GEG 1920 and completion of General Studies

 

Stacked With: ENV 3400

Description: This course presents an analysis of water as a major resource. It includes the study of the hydrologic cycle; competing water uses, current water problems, and approaches to water management. The relationship of water to land use is examined in terms of dams, watersheds, water laws, pollution, and flood control. Students will propose a design to conserve, reuse, and allocate fresh water resources in a developing country while considering geo-political consequences.

Syllabus

Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): ENV 1200 and completion of General Studies

Description: This course provides an overview of policy related to environmental engineering and major environmental laws in the U.S. The major statutes are analyzed in terms of purpose, scope, implementation, compliance requirements, and impact on land use. Students will review applicable case law and case studies as they apply to current engineering practices.

Syllabus

Credits: 3 (3+0)

Prerequisite(s): ENV 1200 and completion of General Studies

Description: This course offers a broad overview of wetland landscapes. Topics include: (1) Spatial distribution (local and national), (2) variations in wetlands topology (salt-water versus fresh-water and warmer versus colder climates), (3) relationships between wetlands (migratory flight paths), (4) wetlands ecosystems (5) human impacts on wetlands, (6) federal, state, and local wetlands regulations, and (7) international wetlands problems. Students will evaluate an engineered wetland and explore design, efficacy in nutrient removal and overall land use implications.

Syllabus

Credits: 3 (3+0)

Prerequisite(s): SSE 3135 with a grade of ā€œCā€ or better or permission of instructor

Description: In this course students are introduced to applications of wood design in engineering. Analysis and design of wood structures is presented.
