Environmental Engineering Part-time Studies Course

School of Construction and the Environment

Course Details

This course will introduce the learner to some of the sampling techniques and analytical methods used to determine common pollutants in air, water, wastewater, sediment and soil. Major industrial pollution issues, typical chemical species, their fugacity and environmental partitioning are discussed and demonstrated with the use of modeling tools during the lecture periods. Field and lab safety, the use of field and laboratory equipment in accordance with proper procedures are covered in the laboratory periods.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of this course, students will be able to:

  • Appraise the complexity of pollution issues and environmental chemistry with emphasis on chemicals' fugacity and environmental partitioning.
  • Critically analyze environmental issues in order to select appropriate sampling and analytical methods to quantitatively and qualitatively assess the magnitude of environmental contamination/pollution.
  • Demonstrate the use of sampling techniques and to determine common pollutants in air, water, wastewater, sediment and soil.
  • Perform analytical methods to determine common pollutants in air, water, wastewater, sediment and soil.
  • Apply statistical tools and modeling applications to process, analyse and interpret data obtained in environmental sampling and analyses.
  • Contrast advantages and limitations of the sampling procedures and analytical methods employed in environmental analyses.
  • Prepare comprehensive field and laboratory reports.
