Jeremy Guest teaches Environmental Engineering (CEE 330) during fall semesters and Sustainable Design of Energy and Water Systems (CEE 498 EWS) during spring semesters.  

CEE 330, Environmental Engineering (Fall Semesters)
The overarching goal of this course is to introduce students to fundamental concepts in environmental engineering and their application to air, soil, and water systems. Students will develop an understanding of chemical pollutants and pollutant mitigation strategies, and learn about the role of environmental engineering in the emerging field of sustainability science. Students will also develop skills necessary to the practice of engineering through written and oral individual and team assignments.
