BS Environmental Engineering Update

I. Course Changes.

ENV 4330 Advanced Hazardous Waste (3). Generation, transport, treatment and disposal of hazardous waste; risk assessment and treatment of contaminated media. Prerequisite: ENV 4351.
NOTE: ENV4330 is not a requirement for graduation, it is considered a technical elective, now the Environmental Engineering program includes three technical electives.

ENV 4351 Solid and Hazardous Waste Management (3). Sources, amounts and characteristics of solid wastes; municipal collection systems; method of disposal; energetic consideration in the recovery and recycle of wastes. Prerequisites: PHY 2049, and CHM 1046 and CHM 1046L.

ENV 4891 Environmental Engineering Senior Design Project (3).Team design project involving applications of fundamental environmental engineering concepts to project design, specifications, contracts and implementation. Emphasis on written and oral communication. Prerequisites: CWR3103, ENV 4401 or ENV4551, ENV 4351, and ENV4101.
