CEE 440 (formerly CEE 336): Hazardous and Solid Waste Management
- View CEE 440 Lecture
Instructor: Charles Werth
Course Description: In this course you will learn the principles that govern the transport, fate, and remediation of hazardous chemicals in the subsurface, including advection, dispersion, sorption, interphase mass transfer, and transformation. You will also evaluate remediation technologies in the constructs of these governing principles and determine the physical, chemical, and biological properties that control their application.
Prerequisites: Undergraduate degree in engineering or science.
CEE 453: Urban Hydrology and Hydraulics
- View CEE 453 Lecture
Instructor: Art Schmidt
Course Description: This is an intermediate-level course on hydrology and hydraulics relating to drainage of surface water. Although much of the emphasis is on runoff from urbanized or urbanizing areas, the principles and tools learned in this course will be useful for any drainage problem. The goal is for you to learn hydrologic and hydraulic analysis tools useful for solving today’s surface drainage problems - analysis tools that can be used for the structural approach of design and build, and the nonstructural approach of planning, operation, and management. Covered materials range from traditional procedures to new developments near the forefront of the technology.
Prerequisites: Students should have a basic hydrologic and hydraulic background equivalent to undergraduate courses in Water Resources Engineering and Introductory Fluid Mechanics.
