This course presents a broad introduction to Environmental Engineering. A set of fundamental principles that serves as the foundation for the entire field of environmental engineers will be overviewed. These principles are based on scientific fundamentals: chemistry, biology, physics, and mathematics. This course explores how these fundamental principles are applied. Applications are selected from water quality engineering, air quality engineering, and hazardous waste management. The main elements of assessing environmental impacts of human activities, projects and plans will be explained. Students will conduct an environmental impact assessment and apply environmental design techniques for a specific problem definition.Environmental engineers address global issues such as climate change, sustainability, waste disposal, water security, utility distribution, pollution and more. Graduates are highly sought after in government and private sectors to provide innovative solutions to these environmental challenges. You will be equipped to assess project impacts on air, water and soil, and to design strategies that minimise adverse effects.
On completion of this course, the student will be able to:
1. By the end of this course, the student should be able to:
¿ Describe and apply the fundamentals of air and water pollution to solve basic environmental engineering problems
¿ Describe environmental challenges and identify solutions
¿ Evaluate design solution alternatives
¿ Write small reports and make judgements
¿ Analyse and environmental problem and define the problem characteristics.
¿ Describe the principles and methods of environmental impact assessment
2. ¿ This course contributes to knowledge and understanding of:
o The underpinning principles and theories of all main aspects of the discipline of Civil Engineering.
o The role of the engineer in the infrastructure project cycle, and their responsibilities in promoting environmentally sustainable solutions, and in ensuring safe working practices.
o The fundamental knowledge of chemistry and biology that underpin all environmental engineering processes.
o Physical, chemical and biological processes and their interaction with the natural and built environment.
o Life cycle assessment of environmental engineering activities.
¿ This course develops intellectual skills so that on completion students will be able to:
o Identify and apply appropriate analytical tools for the analysis and solution of engineering problems.
o Approach problems and design holistically, and work to an appropriate level of detail for the stage of analysis or design that is required.
o Learn new theories, concepts, methods, etc and how to apply them in environmental treatment processes and technologies.
¿ Practical skills developed in this course include the ability to
o Apply a range of software tools in design.
o Work effectively in a group environment.
o Improve presentation, reading (reports and scientific papers) and writing skills.
¿ Transferable skills developed in this course include the ability to
o Competently use computers and general software including spreadsheets, word processing and presentation packages.
o Apply analytical skills to a wide variety of problems.
o Communication skills.
¿ Knowledge of the science and mathematics underpinning Civil Engineering is developed in this course so that students acquire
o Knowledge and understanding of the fundamental scientific principles that underpin an education in civil engineering, and an appreciation of their application.
o The ability to use mathematical methods and tools in the analysis and solution of civil engineering problems.
o An awareness of developing technologies in a specialised area of civil engineering.
o Knowledge and understanding of mathematical models relevant to civil engineering, and an appreciation of their limitations.
¿ Areas of engineering analysis acquired in this course include
o The ability to apply knowledge and understanding of engineering principles to the solution of civil engineering problems.
o Knowledge and understanding of underpinning principles and theories in environmental engineering and sustainability.
