Objectives Environmental engineers deal with the fate, behavior, prevention, and treatment of contaminants in the air, soil and water. In this class we will focus on how environmental engineers use models to predict the fate of water-borne contaminants in the environment and to design wastewater treatment systems. You will find that models of environmental systems are interdisciplinary and to build them you will need to integrate fundamental principals from physics, chemistry, and biology into governing equations where reactions and mass transport are accounted for. You will develop both analytical and numerical solutions to these models and use them to make predictions of contaminant effects and to design treatment processes. Math – Physics – Fluid Mechanics – Chemistry − Biology The amazing ability to represent reality symbolically
