This is an undergraduate course that covers fundamentals of environmental science and engineering as applied to water and wastewater treatment, air quality control, and solid and hazardous waste management. Teaching innovations include selection of a new text book for the course and addition of a tour of one wastewater and one water treatment plant as part of the course requirements.
This course is offered to both undergraduate and graduate students and is designed to assist students in developing and understanding fundamentals of water chemistry as applied to the description and evaluation of natural environments and environmental quality control systems. Performed major revisions of the lecture portion of the course to adopt a new text book and include latest information in the field. Also, performed major revisions of the laboratory portion of the course to include modern analytical techniques.
This course is predominantly a graduate course that is designed to assist students in understanding basic principles and applications of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, reaction equilibria and kinetics, diffusion, and mass transfer to natural environments and environmental quality control systems. Developed a set of course notes that are distributed to students through University Duplicating Services since there is no suitable text book on the market that adequately covers all the aspects of the course.
This graduate course is designed to assist students in understanding theory and applications of physical and chemical principles to water and wastewater treatment and disposal including mixing, equalization, coagulation, sedimentation, filtration, disinfection, adsorption, chemical precipitation, gas transfer, and solids handling. Prepared several handouts to augment the text book and added a tour of two water treatment plants as part of the course.
