Environmental Resources Engineering Degrees Offered: BS Minor Humboldt State University offers one of the largest and oldest accredited undergraduate environmental engineering programs in the United States.
Introduction to Academic Integrity The Introduction to Academic Integrity course illustrates academic integrity and plagiarism in real-life The fundamental principles of environmental science. A clear sense of academic honesty and responsibility is fundamental to good scholarship, and the integrity of university academic work and the degrees conferred by the university is dependent upon the honesty and soundness of the teacher-student learning relationship and of the evaluation process.
Therefore, all students must understand the meaning and consequences of cheating, plagiarism, and other academic offences. Foundations for Environmental Science Provides the opportunity to demonstrate and solidify skills in English, Mathematics, Biology and Chemistry needed for success in Environmental Science.
Students will receive lectures and laboratories in Chemistry, Biology, and Mathematics Course Credits: Statistics Focuses on how data can be transformed into reliable information.
Statistical tests are employed using first principles, real examples, and the technology commonly employed by environmental scientists and managers. Students are introduced to statistical concepts and techniques through relevant examples and expected to demonstrate their understanding of statistics through the appropriate application of technology to real data.
Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Focuses on the physical processes involved in the behaviour of the atmosphere and oceans, and how they create many observable natural phenomena and influence the movement of pollutants. Students explore a variety of short- and long-term phenomena that range in size from the micro to global scales, the challenges involved in their measurement and the application of fundamental concepts to environmental decision-making.
Environmental Chemistry Introduces students to the study of the sources, reactions, transport, fate and effects of chemical species in the physical environment, with special emphasis on the reactions in natural waters, the atmosphere and geosphere.
Basic concepts in thermodynamics, redox, solution equilibria and organic chemistry are employed. Concludes with a brief overview of the management of waste and contaminated soils. Field and laboratory practical exercises and examples from applied research projects are used to reinforce the concepts presented.
Application of Environmental Law ENSC is a survey course that introduces a wide range of topics and concepts relating to the legal system in Canada generally, and the operation of public welfare or environmental statutes, laws and regulations within that system. Develops the ability to understand legal terms and concepts concurrently with developing basic legal research skills.
Applied and Environmental Microbiology and Biochemistry Examines the role of the microbial world, and the impact that microbial biochemistry may have on the environment, both alone and in combination with human activity. Through readings, seminars, laboratories, and lectures, the students gain an appreciation of the complexity, diversity, and versatility of the microscopic members of the environment.
Tools for Business Decision Making Explores the challenges and opportunities faced by business owners as business models respond to environmental sustainability, carbon neutrality, changes in financing and demands for fairness.
Emphasis is placed on the importance of integrating personal values and objectives, organizational and societal goals, and market opportunities during the planning process. Includes use of basic accounting and decision-making tools.
Sustainability from Theory to Reality Explores the three imperative models of sustainable development beginning with a historical exploration of the concept. From there, course moves to practical applications designed to develop an understanding of how the three imperatives of ecological, economic, and social sustainability interact.
Industrial Processes Several primary and secondary industries are profiled in terms of chemical engineering principles. Strategies for mitigating environmental impacts are assessed and participants learn the basic rationale for, and concepts of, pollution prevention and remediation.
The evolution of the concept from its "birth," arising from the failure of environmental protection, to its rise to prominence through support from the precautionary principle, are traced. Strategies for mitigated environmental impacts are assessed. Environmental Ecology Anthropogenic stress on natural ecosystems is increasing at an alarming rate.
The Royal Roads campus is used to look at long-term monitoring strategies and management. The laboratory component of this course explores the use of various assessment, analysis and synthesis techniques; in addition to illustrating some of the concepts and principles explored in the lectures.
Students gain hands-on experience with scientific tools and techniques fundamental to the study of environmental ecology.
Ecotoxicology This integrative course exams the fate and effects of toxic substances on the various levels of ecosystem organization from molecular to global levels. Provides a comprehensive view of this emerging field through practical laboratory exercises, an evolving case study and theoretical investigations.
Environmental Management Tools Introduces the concepts behind the integration of business and environmental management, with emphasis on the analysis and comparison of several environmental management systems EMS.
Covers the background of, and the basic rationale for, the concepts of pollution prevention P2. A process for arriving at a publicly accepted Pollution Prevention Plan is presented and discussed, including a recently released report on the BC plan.
Environmental Hydrology and Remediation This course examines how fundamental physical principles governing surface and ground water movement affect the fate and transport of pollutants, and the techniques that can be used to characterize and remediate contaminated waters.IntRoDUCtIon This document replaces The Ontario Curriculum, Grades 11 and Science, Beginning in September , all science programs for Grades 11 and 12 will be based on the expecta-tions outlined in this document.
