|Faculty or Section :||Faculty of Health, Engineering and Sciences|
|School or Department :||School of Civil Engineering and Surveying|
|Student contribution band :||Band 2|
|ASCED code :||039901 - Environmental Engineering|
|Grading basis :||Graded|
Pre-requisite: ENV2105 and ENV2103 or Students must be enrolled in one of the following Programs: GCEN or METC or MEPR or GCNS or GDNS or MENS or GEPR
The purpose of this course is to allow students to develop an understanding of how the sources and environmental effects of pollutants are conceptualised, modelled and monitored. Air, water and soil pollution issues are covered in addition to noise and odour. Conceptual models of key pollutant processes, transformations and interactions are introduced, leading to the development of numerical models. These models are applied to evaluate the potential impacts of pollutant discharges, as guided by current environmental legislation.
