COURSES TAUGHT

Prerequisite: Be a fully admitted student in the School of Engineering or have the written permission of the dean.

In a seminar format, small groups explore the history of engineering, engineering ethics, and the impact of engineering practice in the context of society.  Critical reading and thinking skills are developed through extensive readings and discussions of relevant engineering, social science, and humanities topics.  Students gain fluency in preparing and presenting the results of these discussions, both in written and oral format.

  • EGR 126: Introduction to Problem Solving

Prerequisite: Be a fully admitted student in the School of Engineering or have the written permission of the dean.

Special attention is given to development of an organized thought process in which analysis, modeling, and construction of algorithms lead to structured procedures for solving non-trivial problems.  The use of structured procedures is reinforced by learning and solving problems with a high level computer language such as C++.

Prerequisites: CHM 112 and EVE 290 or consent of instructor

A study of aqueous processes occurring in natural waters and in water and wastewater treatment systems.  It is also intened to give a comprehensive knowledge of the factors that affect these processes.  Topics  covered include chemical thermodynamics and equilibrium, kinetics, acid-base chemistry, the carbonate system, precipitation and dissolution, complexation, and redox chemistry.  Four complimentary laboratory experiences will be conducted.

           Multi-disciplinary design projects with substantial specialization content.  Small groups design, build and                   test realistic engineering systems under faculty supervision.  Projects include safety, economic,

           environmental and ethical considerations and require written and oral reports.
