Water quality modeling

This course builds on environmental chemistry and microbiology taken in previous courses. The emphasis is on quantification using the public domain package, PHREEQC, which is an excellent computation tool. Numerous applications are investigated during the course.

Introduction to environmental engineering

This introduction to Enviromental Engineering is meant to show the students how upcoming courses in mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology and other areas will be used to gain a scientific understanding of environmental problems and then help to solve them.

Soil sciences

This course is an introduction to Soil Sciences, and includes the main soil characteristics, properties and functions. The teaching is based on theoretical concepts, exercises as well as field and laboratory experiments.

Sites remediation

This course introduces the students in the different steps of contaminated site management, the techniques of site investigation, the choice of appropriate remediation techniques, and the modeling of the contaminants in aquifers.
