Description
EE&S 401
Environmental Engineering
Dr. John Coates

Introduction to the field of environmental engineering. Topics include environmental phenomena, impact of pollutants in the aquatic environment, solid-waste management, air pollution control, radiological health, and simple water and wastewater treatment systems. Preq: Junior standing in engineering or consent of instructor. Coreq: C E 341, CH E 230, M E 308, or consent of instructor.

EN SP 200
Introduction to Environmental Science Mr. Scott Brame

Basic principles of environmental science, including ecology, energy, resources, waste management; and air, water, and soil pollution. Consideration of issues, specific cases, investigative approaches, and remedial actions. Preq: Sophomore standing and two semesters of freshman chemistry or biology.

GEOL 101 Physical Geology Dr. Alan Coulson

Study of the minerals and rocks that compose earth’s crust, their origins and transformations.  Emphasizes geological processes, both internal and external, by which changes are produced on or in the earth.

GEOL 112 Earth Resources
Mr. Scott Brame

Survey of earth’s mineral, energy, water, and land resources and environmental and societal impacts associated with the use of these resources.

GEOL 120 Natural Hazards
Dr. Alan Coulson

The course investigates the science behind natural disasters (earthquakes, hurricanes, etc.) and also examines how society uses scientific, technological, and political-economic data in responding to such events. The class counts for both Math/Sci Credit and STS Credit.

GEOL 125/EN SP 125 Sustainable Resource Use
Mr. Scott Brame

This course explores the challenges our society faces
in making the transition to renewable resource use
in a way that is truly sustainable environmentally,
economically and socially. The conflicting demands
of each system will be examined and used to
critically examine possible solutions using a systems
based approach.

GEOL 421/621 GIS Applications in Geology
Mr. Scott Brame

Introduction to geographic information
systems with applications to current geological and
hydrological problems. Topics include the use of
global positioning systems, spatial analysis, and
image analysis. Hands-on training with geographic
information systems software and techniques
is covered in lab. Preq: Senior standing, strong
computer skills

PH SC 107/107L
Introduction to Earth Science
Dr. Minory Nammouz

Survey of topics in geology, meteorology, astronomy, and oceanography, emphasizing comprehension and practical application of earth science concepts to experiments and activities appropriate for general education.

PH SC 108/108L
Introduction to Physical Science
Dr. Minory Nammouz

Survey of topics in chemistry and physics emphasizing comprehension and practical application of physical science concepts to experiments and activities appropriate for general education.
