Global Changes and Sustainability
Brenda Bowen, University of Utah
This is a project-based graduate course that focuses on developing an interdisciplinary perspective of the complex systems of environmental change and the links to society.
Life Cycle Assessment Modeling
James Stone, South Dakota School of Mines and Technology
This is an interdisciplinary lecture and computational laboratory course where students will focus on the computational structure and data sources required to complete an environmental LCA. The course is delivered using a problem based learning approach, utilizing many of the LCA modeling software available.
Hydrotopia: Water Resources Management in the West
Steven Burian, University of Utah
This is an interdisciplinary water management course. It is co-taught by an engineering instructor and an instructor from humanities. Students experience class sessions involving traditional lectures, guest speakers, position paper debates, and design charettes. Students are required to complete numerous in-class exercises, homework, three position papers, and a team project.
Geology for Engineers
Mary Beth Gray, Bucknell University
This is an introductory course designed for first year civil engineering students. Lectures, classroom exercises, discussions, indoor labs, homework, readings, and a long-term library research project are all components of this course. Field labs include limestone and coal surface mines, karstified terrain, and surficial and bedrock mapping.
Horacio Ferriz, California State University-Stanislaus
A practical course about the nature of professional geologic work. Includes (1) discussions about engineering geology (the use of geology to the solution of engineering problems in civil and sanitary engineering), soil mechanics, rock mechanics; (2) mineral exploration, and (3) geothermal energy exploration.
Geology for Engineers
Freddi-Jo Bruschke, California State University-Fullerton
This is a lecture-based course designed to provide an broad introduction to geologic concepts and processes for engineers with no previous exposure to geology. Students complete a series of analytic assignments related to the topics covered in lecture and research a California geologic hazard topic to present to the rest of the class.
Geology for Engineers/Engineering Geology
Diane Doser, University of Texas at El Paso, The
This course emphasizes how geology is used by engineers so that they can coverse with geoscientists, read pertinent geoscience literature and identify geological problems in the field.
Robert Mitchell, Western Washington University
This is a geology course that focuses on the core activities of engineering geologists site characterization and geologic hazard identification and mitigation.
Gretchen Miller, Texas A & M University
Groundwater Engineering is a lecture-based course designed to provide graduate students with both the background information and quantitative tools they will need to work in the water management and environmental consulting fields or to conduct related research.
