|Engineering Technology 501
|Advanced Air Quality
|This course will provide students a fundamental understanding of atmospheric processes and weather patterns and how they affect pollutant transport. Sources, sinks, health and environmental effects, and abatement technologies for air pollutants will be addressed. In addition, atmospheric reactions that create pollution or deplete stratospheric ozone will be included. Prerequisites: Consent of instructor.
|Engineering Technology 502
|Advanced Water and Wastewater
|This course will investigate water and wastewater treatment technology past and present. The course targets a general engineering and/or science student. Technical and design considerations will also be explored. Both rural and large municipal systems will be discussed. Lectures will contain examples from real world applications (preferable in Wisconsin) and in-progress industrial developments. Particular emphasis will be placed on local water and wastewater installations. Prerequisites: Consent of instructor.
|Engineering Technology 571
|Water Resources Engineering
|This course provides a basic introduction to water resources engineering, including fundamentals of hydrology, rainfall-runoff modeling, hydraulic processes (including both pressurized pipe flow and open channel flow), and hydrologic frequency analysis. Several experimental laboratory sessions are included to reinforce lectures and provide hands-on learning opportunities. Prerequisites: Consent of instructor.
|Engineering Technology 574
|Field Sampling and Analysis
|This course will investigate methods to determine and report water quality of natural systems (e.g. lakes and rivers) and drinking water (plants and wells). Included are lectures on the theoretical concepts and hands on labs and field trips to learn, how to sample for contaminants, how to take, preserve, transport and analyze field samples, how to interpret and present analytical results in light of regulations. The course targets those seeking a masters degree or are in need of continuing education credits at the masters level. Prerequisites: Consent of instructor.
|Engineering Technology 575
|This course will be an introduction to renewable energy technology past and present. The course targets a general engineering and/or science student to the concepts of renewable energy. Social issues related to renewal energy adoption will also be explored. Lectures will contain examples from real world applications (preferable in Wisconsin) and in-progress industrial developments. Particular emphasis will be placed on local renewable energy installations. Prerequisites: Consent of instructor.
|Engineering Technology 577
|Industrial Safety and Hygiene
|This class will cover the basics of industrial and occupational safety and health, including the minimum requirements under Federal OSHA and State OSHA. The application of specific engineering and public health principles will be discussed in relation to the prevention of injury and disease and promoting the health and safety of workers in various industrial settings. Prerequisites: Consent of instructor.
|Engineering Technology 595
|1 – 6 (crs.)
|Biodigester Field Operations
|This course explores the principles and practice of anaerobic digester (AD) operations. This is a hands-on course that takes place primarily onsite at an operational anaerobic digester. The course will involve the theory of biodigestion, operation of biodigesters at the industrial-scale, training in AD systems, and include all the necessary information to operate an AD facility. The course will also explore the economics and future technologies that will be coupled with AD operations. Prerequisite: Consent of instructor and Department of Engineering Technology.
|Engineering Technology 597
|1 – 6 (crs.)
|Environmental Laboratory Operations
|This course explores both the principles and practice of environmental laboratory operations. This is a hands-on course that takes place primarily onsite in a laboratory operating as a commercial contract testing and research and development laboratory. The course will discuss the requirements for laboratory accreditation, QA/QC requirements for certified analysis, standard operating procedures, field sampling techniques, common chemical and biological analysis techniques, water analysis methods, pilot study evaluations, report writing, and data review. Prerequisite: Instructor consent.
