CEE 365: Environmental Engineering Principles
Fall 2013, Fall 2015, Fall 2016, Fall 2018
This class provides an introduction to mass balance modeling of contaminant fate, transport and removal in the environment; commonly used reactor configurations for water and air quality control; partitioning of contaminants among environmental media; contaminant types and sources; regional and global contemporary environmental issues. Textbook: Environmental Engineering Science by Nazaroff and Alverez Cohen
CEE 580: Physicochemical Processes in Environmental Engineering
Winter 2015, Winter 2016
This course discusses physicochemical separated and transformation processes in natural and engineered environmental systems; process modeling; design of operations involving state and phase transformation; chemical oxidation, reduction, sorption, stripping and exchange processes, membrane separations, particle aggregation and coagulation, sedimentation and filtration.
CEE 597: Environmental Organic Chemistry
Winter 2013, Winter 2014, Winter 2017, Winter 2019, Fall 2021
This course focuses on the behavior and transformation of anthropogenic chemicals in the environment. Specific topics include sorption, volatilization, air-water exchange, and transformation processes (e.g., hydrolysis, photolysis, redox, etc.). Throughout the course, predictive tools for the fate and transport of chemicals in the environment are developed using chemical molecular properties. Textbook: Environmental Organic Chemistry by Schwarzenbach, Gschwend, Imboden
CEE 465: Environmental Organic Chemistry
An introduction to the analysis, characterization and principles of physical, chemical and biological processes, operations and reactor configurations commonly used for water quality control; preliminary design of specific water and wastewater treatment processes and operations; discussion of economic and legislative constraints and requirements.
