Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2018-2019.
Course introduces concepts and tools required for the sustainable management of energy, water, soil, and air resources in our modern society. Semester is organized into four modules, each concentrating on one resource area and including a case study of local or regional significance. Students work in teams to address sustainability problems that arise in the case studies. Each module also includes presentations of technical approaches used in environmental engineering analyses. Project teams will be expected to apply those methods in their case study evaluations and management proposals. Technical approaches include life cycle analysis, mass balance computations, and mathematical modeling of pollutant dynamics in the environment.
When Offered Spring.
