Environmental Engineering (ENVE)
5410. Advanced Biological Wastewater Treatment. 3. Theory and practice of advanced biological treatment processes for municipal and industrial wastewaters, sludges, groundwater bioremediation and solid waste. Emphasis is on fundamental principles applied to the design and control of existing processes and the development of innovative systems. Cross listed with CE/CHE 5410. Prerequisites: consent of instructor.
5425. Environmental Engineering Microbiology. 3. Focuses on microbial processes of interest in environmental engineering applications, including microbial corrosion; acid mine drainage; biogenic greenhouse gas emissions; biogeochemical cycling of nitrogen, phosophorus, and sulfur; microbial transformations involving iron and other metals/metalloids; anaerobic processes and syntrophic associations; methane oxidation; environmental transmission of pathogens; remediation of hazardous materials. Cross listed with CE 5425. Prerequisite: graduate standing.
5430. Environmental Engineering Chemistry. 3. Focus includes inorganic, organic, physical, equilibrium, biochemistry, colloidal and nuclear chemistry with an emphasis on the problems/solutions encountered by environmental and civil engineers. Prerequisite: CHEM 1020.
5441. Solid Waste Engineering. 3. Municipal solid waste characteristics and quantities, collection, landfills, processing of municipal solid waste, materials separation, combustion and energy recovery, and biochemical processes with an emphasis on materials flow. Integrated solid waste management principles are also discussed. Cross listed with CE 4441/CE 5441. Prerequisite: graduate standing.
5445. Hazardous Waste Site Remediation. 3. The contamination of soil, air, and groundwater by improper disposal of hazardous wastes is covered. Control and cleanup of contaminated groundwater plumes, treatment of polluted soils and soil gases is emphasized. Case studies are extensively used. Cross listed with CE 5445. Prerequisite: CE 3400.
5450. Advanced Physical Chemical Treatment. 3. A study of physical and chemical processes for treatment of water, and waste water. Cross listed with CE 5450. Prerequisite: CE 4400.
