Gateway Engineering Education Coalition

The Environmental Engineering CID of the Gateway coalition is developing a rich variety of "course modules" in selected impact areas that will support environmental education at a wide variety of universities independently of how their programs are organized. "Course modules" are packages of information that can be used to occupy approximately one to two weeks of course time (3 to 6 class periods plus assignments) and can be used to enrich existing environmental courses, can be combined to build new courses, and can be applied in innovative educational approaches such as freshman design team projects. The following "impact areas" were selected for academic year 1995-96:

  • Solid and Hazardous Waste
  • Water/Wastewater Treatment & Environmental Chemistry
  • Air Pollution
  • Environmental Hydraulics & Water Resources

The goal of the Environmental Engineering CID is to package educational resources in exciting new ways so they may be shared among Environmental curricula within and beyond the Gateway.

There are 11 projects in this section.
