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.

Microbiology for engineers

This course covers the fundamental microbial processes that take place in the environment and in specific engineered compartments. It represents the major cycles that are carried out by microorganisms and that impact planet Earth.

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.

Water and wastewater treatment

This course on water and wastewater treatment shows how to implement and design different methods and techniques to eliminate organic matter, nitrogen and phosporous from wastewater, and how to apply physical and chemical methods and techniques to produce drinking water.
