courses taught

  • COEN 3930 - Engineering Internship/Co-op
    Primary Instructor - Summer 2022
    Students enrolled in this course participate in a pre-approved internship or cooperative education program with an employer that allows them to explore the relationship between theory and practice and demonstrate evidence of significant learning (e.g., academic assignments and employer/sponsor evaluations). Pass/Fail only. Up to 3 credits may apply towards BS degree program's Free Electives (even if student has multiple enrollments in this course and/or COEN 4950). Students should contact the CEAS Extracurricular Programs Manager for more information. Minimum 2.75 cumulative GPA is required.
  • CVEN 4404 - Water Chemistry
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2020 / Fall 2021 / Fall 2022
    Introduces chemical fundamentals of inorganic aqueous compounds and contaminants in lecture and laboratory. Lecture topics include thermodynamics and kinetics of acids and base reactions, carbonate chemistry, air-water exchange, precipitation, dissolution, complexation, oxidation-reduction and sorption. Same as EVEN 4404.
  • CVEN 4414 - Water Chemistry Laboratory
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2021 / Fall 2022
    Reinforces chemical fundamentals of inorganic aqueous compounds and contaminants from CVEN/EVEN 4404 in laboratory experiments and reports. Topics include acids and bases, carbonate chemistry (alkalinity) and other water chemistry characteristics (hardness, dissolved oxygen); precipitation, complexation and oxidation-reduction reactions; and laboratory techniques and reporting. Same as EVEN 4414.
  • CVEN 4434 - Environmental Engineering Design
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2021 / Spring 2022
    Examines the design of facilities for the treatment of municipal water and wastewater, hazardous industrial waste, contaminated environmental sites and sustainable sanitation in developing countries. Economic, societal and site specific criteria impacting designs are emphasized. Same as EVEN 4434.
  • ENEN 4600 - Interdisciplinary Energy Engineering Projects
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2021 / Spring 2022
    Prepares students to analyze energy systems from technical, economic, and policy perspectives with project topics varying by semester. Provides historical and contemporary context of the energy landscape. Emphasizes application of engineering fundamentals for the design and evaluation of real world energy systems. Projects will be completed by working in interdisciplinary teams.

  • EVEN 4494 - Contaminant Fate and Transport
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2022
    The course requires students to design and conduct experiments, analyze, interpret data, and write technical engineering reports. This lab-based course gives students an understanding of processes that govern the behavior of pollutants in the environment. The subject includes aspects of intermedia contaminant transport, surface and groundwater hydrology, air pollution modeling, degradation processes and remediation, human exposure pathways and risk analysis. Recommended prerequisite or corequisite: EVEN 4464 (Environmental Engineering Processes).
  • EVEN 4830 - Special Topics
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2020 / Spring 2021 / Fall 2021 / Spring 2022
    May be repeated up to 12 total credit hours.
