Environmental Engineering and Sustainability 2 (CIVE08023)
Normal Year Taken
Delivery Session Year
This course presents a broad introduction to Environmental Engineering and Sustainability, covering the Hydrological Cycle, how to assess the quantity of water available for use (potable water supply, irrigation, etc.), how to ensure the required water quantity is sustainably met and what challenges are currently faced by Engineers. Furthermore, transport contamination in water will also be covered through Transport Phenomena Principles. Environmental sustainability will be examined in an Engineering context, including basic concepts such as life cycle analysis and environmental impact assessment. This course will encourage students to think in an interdisciplinary way, make judgements and decisions to solve environmental problems in an integrated way.
