BEE 2510

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2019-2020.

This course introduces students to the chemistry, ecology, biology, geology, ethics and environmental legislation relevant to addressing environmental problems as an engineer. Students learn to apply basic biological and chemical sciences along with math, physics and engineering sciences to solve energy and mass balances.  Emphasis is on solving case studies of contemporary environmental issues including contamination in natural systems, air quality assessment, hazardous waste management, and sustainable engineering solutions in developing countries. BE and EnvE students must complete either BEE 2510 or BEE 2600 according to their academic plan. Students who complete both BEE 2510 and BEE 2600 receive engineering credit toward their degree for only one of these courses.

When Offered Fall.
