Content

In the past two decades, many countries around the globe have witnessed a growing need to restore environmental quality and protect the environment from the degrading effects of air, noise, solid waste and water pollution. In this unit, students will learn how different cutting-edge engineering processes and systems can be used to solve air and noise pollution problems. This unit is part of a series of environmental pollution control and management units in the environmental engineering course. This unit will allow students to develop knowledge of environmental analysis processes along with technical and economic evaluations. Students will be expected to develop engineering solutions using fundamental principles of chemistry, physics and mathematics. Knowledge of best available technologies for air and noise pollution control including, design methods, installation and operation of various control processes, process equipment and systems are relevant and directly applicable for practice as an environmental engineer.
