The summer is marching forward, and will be over before we know it. My teaching schedule for next year is now finalized:
ENGS 115 – Intro to Engineering – I teach one of the modules in this “round-robin” course. I spend my alloted 5 hours covering the NYC water supply system. We do a 2 hour lab “competition” where teams compete against one another to build the best water filter. Did I mention there were prizes for the winning team?
ENGS 204 – Environmental Engineering Principles – This is an introductory class in environmental engineering for sophomore Civil and Civil/Environmental majors. I cover all of the basic “tools” that environmental engineers need to start solving real-world problems. Sort of like the “Statics” for structural engineering.
ENVG 706 – Water Chemistry – My graduate class in water chemistry is perhaps my favorite class to teach. Three hours a night of everything you ever wanted to know about the chemistry of water.
