CE 3220: Water Resources Engineering
Credits: 3
Covers topics related to hydraulics and hydrology, including complicated pipes designs, pumps, open channel, rainfall, evaporation, and surface runoff applied to stormwater and bmp design. Applications include water supply, drainage, flood control, and water control, and computer modeling. Prerequisite: CE 3210
CE 3222: Water Resources Engineering Workshop
Credits: 1
Introduction to computational tools and approaches common in water resource engineering. Topics include: geographic information systems (GIS) for water resources; software tools applied for hydrologic and hydraulic data analysis and visualization; and use of industry-standard hydrology and hydraulic models water resource system simulation and design. Pre/Coreq: Students must have completed or currently enrolled in CE 3220.
EVSC 4559: New Course in Environmental Science
Credits: 1–4
This course provides the opportunity to offer a new topic in the subject area of environmental science.
EVSC 4993: Independent Study
Credits: 1–6
Specialized topics in ecology, atmosphere, hydrology, environmental geology, or environmental systems not normally covered in formal classes under the direction of the faculty. Prerequisite: Instructor permission.
CE 4995: Civil Engineering Research
Credits: 1–4
Study of a civil engineering problem in depth by each student using library, computer, or laboratory facilities. The project is conducted in close consultation with departmental faculty and involves survey, analysis, or project development. Progress reports and a comprehensive written report are required. May be repeated if necessary. Prerequisite: Contact individual professor for Instructor Permission.
EVSC 4995: Supervised Research
Credits: 1–6
Original research usually involving a field or laboratory problem in the environmental sciences under the direction of one or more faculty members. The results may form the basis of an undergraduate thesis which is required to partially fulfill the Distinguished Majors Program in environmental sciences. Prerequisite: Instructor permission.
