Teaching


GIS Applications (CEE 598 or EVE 494)
This course will provide an introduction to the concepts and principles of applying GIS for analysis of problems in environmental and hydrosystems engineering, primarily using ESRI’s ArcGIS software. The focus will be on providing students with a fundamental understanding of spatial applications in GIS including, but not limited to: data acquisition, data creation and preparation, data visualization, geoprocessing, terrain mapping, watershed analyses, mapping changes over time, spatial interpolation, and coding. In addition to learning GIS through the lens of ESRI’s ArcGIS software, this course will introduce other spatial analysis techniques and software, such as R, and Google Earth Engine.

Environmental Engineering Mechanics (EVE 214)
Concepts of engineering statics and dynamics in the context of environmental processes.  The course-level learning objectives are:  To integrate concepts from statics and dynamics into a single course in the context of environmental processes with emphasis on fluid mechanics applications. To explain key topics from statics including general principles, units, vectors, forces, equilibrium of rigid bodies, and potential energy. To explain key topics from dynamics including motion of a point, Newton’s second law, energy methods, and momentum methods.
