TEACHING

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.
 

CEE 498 EWS, SUSTAINABLE DESIGN OF ENERGY AND WATER SYSTEMS (SPRING SEMESTERS)
The goal for this course is to provide students with an understanding of quantitative sustainable design and how to navigate decision-making in the design of civil and environmental engineering infrastructure. Special attention is paid to the interactions among civil and environmental infrastructure with energy systems, water systems, and the environment. Students will learn fundamental principles governing the design of conventional and emerging technologies for energy production and water treatment and management, as well as quantitative tools for economic (life cycle costing) and environmental (life cycle assessment, LCA) sustainability assessments, and design under uncertainty (using Monte Carlo). Individually and in teams, students will design and evaluate the relative sustainability of civil/environmental infrastructure, including a semester-long design project which will include detailed design of components that fall into at least two of the following three CEE sub-disciplines:  environmental, hydraulic, geotechnical.
