Available Courses

Students must take core courses and additional courses from one of the three tracks based on the student’s interest. The three EEP Tracks are:

Biogeochemistry Hydrogeosciences Atmospheric Processes

BIOGEOCHEMISTRY

Students completing this track will gain knowledge and skills that will allow them to identify, quantify, and ultimately control, the biological, geological and chemical reactive processes of natural and engineered systems affecting contaminant transport in the environment in order to restore/maintain soil and water quality. Entering students should have basic quantitative skills (physics, math and statistics) and completed courses in introductory microbiology, geology and chemistry. Some of the biogeochemistry courses are:

  • Environmental Transformations
  • Environmental Microbiology
  • Environmental Engineering Chemistry I
  • Coastal Pollution and Bioremediation
  • Advanced Environmental Engineering Laboratory
  • Environmental Engineering Chemistry II
  • Environmental Systems Modeling
  • Environmental Physico-Chemical Processes
  • Environmental Bio-Chemical Processes
  • Contaminant Source Remediation
  • Advanced Soil Chemistry
  • Bioremediation
  • Biofilm Engineering
  • Radiotracer Applications in Natural Systems
  • Transport & Transformation of Air Pollutants

HYDROGEOSCIENCES

Students completing this track will gain knowledge and skills in measurement and modeling of primary hydrologic processes taking place at the atmosphere-surface interface (precipitation, energy balance), related to overland flows and sediment transport, and to vadose zone and groundwater flow and contaminant transport. Students will acquire experience in hydrologic site characterization and monitoring methods. Entering students should have basic quantitative skills (physics, math and statistics) and completed courses in introductory hydrology, geology and chemistry. Some of the hydrogeosciences courses are:

  • Groundwater Flow Modeling
  • Numerical Methods in Civil Engineering
  • Open Channel Hydraulics
  • Vadose Zone Hydrology
  • Environmental Measurements in Natural Systems
  • Ecohydrology
  • Environmental Systems Modeling
  • Subsurface Contaminant Transport Modeling
  • Laminar Viscous Flows
  • Computational Methods of Viscous Fluid Dynamics
  • Unsaturated Flow & Transport
  • Ground Water Assessment & Remediation
  • Probabilistic Methods in Engineering Systems
  • Environmental Geophysics

ATMOSPHERIC PROCESSES

Students completing this track will gain knowledge in meteorology and atmospheric science, will be able to quantify how species move in the atmosphere, understand climate and its forcings; be able to make atmospheric measurements (meteorological and sampling for gaseous and aerosol pollutants); and obtain knowledge of atmospheric chemical processes. Entering students should have basic quantitative skills (math and statistics) and completed courses in introductory hydrology (large-scale fluid motion) and chemistry. Some of the atmospheric processes courses are:

  • Air Pollution
  • Hydrologic Remote Sensing
  • Transportation and Air Quality
  • Geophysical Fluid Dynamics
  • Combustion and Air Pollution Engineering
  • Micrometeorology I
  • Micrometeorology II
  • Environmental Biophysics
  • Hydroclimatology
  • Advanced Combustion
  • Seminar in Combustion-Generated Pollution
  • Environmental Measurements & Instrumentation
  • Transport & Transformation of Air Pollutants
