ENGR W80 Advanced Chemical Engineering.  This course addresses essential advanced topics for design. Topics build on the foundational concepts from several earlier engineering courses. The course includes advanced topics from separations, heat transfer, and non-elementary kinetics. An introduction to mathematical modeling for advanced transport is considered. In addition, fundamental concepts of environmental, health, and safety issues, as well as corrosion and materials of construction for design are presented. Evaluation will be based on written lab reports, homework, oral presentations, and final exam. This course may fulfill a senior topics elective in the Engineering major.  Prerequisites: Engineering 330, 331, 335, and senior standing.  J. & J. Van Antwerp.  8:30 a.m. to noon.

ENGR W81 Stormwater Management.  Civil and Environmental engineers today are frequently faced with the problem of managing the impacts of stormwater within both urban and rural environment.  Management involves addressing issues of both stormwater quantity and quality.  The first objective of this course is to introduce the basic principles, computational methods, and treatment approaches used to manage stormwater quantity and quality.  The second objective is to introduce the students to issues of professional practice through design projects. The projects will look at problems of both urban and rural stormwater management and treatment. Guest speakers and case study reviews are also used to emphasize basic principles and management techniques.  Course evaluation is based on problem assignments and design projects.  This course may fulfill a senior topics elective in the Engineering major. Prerequisites: Engineering 320 and 306 or permission of instructor.  R. Hoeksema. 8:30 a.m. to noon.

ENGR W82 Sustainable Energy Systems. Renewable and sustainable energy systems are providing increasingly large fractions of the energy mix worldwide. In this course, students consider historical development, fundamental engineering principles, economic factors, and energy return on investment for a wide variety of renewable and sustainable energy technologies. An understanding of system design software is obtained through in-depth focus on one renewable energy technology. Evaluation will be based on several required design projects are required. This course may fulfill a senior topics elective in the Engineering major. Prerequisite: Engineering 333 or permission of the instructor.  M. Heun.  8:30 a.m. to noon.
