Certificate in Environmental Impact Assessment - Environmental Impacts and Resource Management¬†(A) APSC 2000   Environmental Impacts and Resource Management¬†(A)
CREDIT HOURS: 3
This course is an introduction to environmental engineering and technology, emphasizing a quantitative engineering approach. The course addresses the issues associated with the safe and ecologically appropriate handling, processing, storage, and utilization of organic wastes arising from human activities, including agricultural and bio-resource production systems. Topics covered will include: growth models for populations of living organisms, as well as models for depletion and replenishment of natural resources; the concept of mass and energy balances applied to quantify changes in environmental systems; physical, chemical, and biological unit operations for treatment and reduction of solid, liquid, and gaseous wastes; and reduction of pollution impacts on air and water resources.
