Minimum Credits: 3
Maximum Credits: 3
This course will build on fundamentals introduced in CHEM 0960/0970 (chemistry for engineers), applying chemical concepts in the context of environmental science and engineering. Topics covered include chemical kinetics, thermodynamics, and equilibria, organic chemistry, and biochemistry. These concepts will be explored within the primary environmental media, water, soil and air. Students will be expected to work independently and in groups to tackle problem sets, in-class problems, and a class term project. Further, this course serves as a bridge to advanced courses in the environmental engineering curriculum where the concepts introduced will be further applied to understanding important environmental phenomena in CEE 1520 (mass and energy balances in environmental engineering) and CEE 1522 (fate and transport in environmental engineering), and techniques used to analyze environmental samples in CEE 1523 (environmental engineering laboratory).
