BEE 4730 - Watershed Engineering


(CU-SBY)     
Fall. 4 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: CEE 3310  or hydrology course. Satisfies BE and EnvE capstone design requirement. Satisfies College of Engineering technical writing requirement.

M. T. Walter.

Teaches basic design and analysis as practiced for water control and nonpoint source pollution prevention. Discusses the origins of design approaches, including their theoretical bases, but this is not a theory course. Most of the course is dedicated to practicing applied design. Assignments are generally representative of real-life engineering problems and involve as much hands-on experience as possible. Some example topics include risk analysis, water conveyance, nonpoint source pollution control, stream restoration, stormwater management, and erosion control.

Outcome 1: An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.

Outcome 2: An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs.

Outcome 3: An ability to communicate effectively.
