BEE 2510

BEE 2510

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2021-2022.

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.

Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: CHEM 2070 or CHEM 2090 or AP Chem. Prerequisite or corequisite: MATH 2930.

Course Attribute (CU-SBY)

Outcomes
  • Students will improve their ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science and mathematics (ABET 1).
  • Students will demonstrate improved ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety and welfare, as well as relevant global, cultural, social, environmental and economic factors (ABET 2).
  • Students will display an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences (ABET 3).
  • Students will demonstrate an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgements which consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts (ABET 4).
  • Students will demonstrate an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks and meet objectives (ABET 5).
  • Students will improve their ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgement to draw conclusions (ABET 6).
  • Students will demonstrate the ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies (ABET 7).
  • Students will improve their capacity to integrate modern biology with engineering principles (ABET-BE).
