Edward Kolodziej, Ph.D.

Courses Taught

CEE 204/390: Fundamentals Of Environmental Engineering [Syllabus]

This course provides a broad overview of the terminology and practice of environmental engineering including water quality engineering, air quality engineering, and hazardous waste management. Topics covered include engineering units, mass balances, risk assessment, basic applied chemistry, water and wastewater treatment, fundamentals of air pollution, and an overview of global warming and sustainability.

CEE 417/617: Introduction to Environmental Quality and Analysis [Syllabus]

This course provides students an introduction to the analysis of water quality by quantifying chemical, physical, and biological parameters typical of water samples. The water quality parameters selected for analysis in this course are most appropriate to the practice of environmental engineering; however, the concepts utilized in this analysis are applicable to the collection and presentation of all experimental data. Additionally, students will gain knowledge of experimental design, data collection, and analysis, while presenting this data in the form of laboratory reports and technical papers.

CEE 458/658: Fundamentals of Environmental Chemistry [Syllabus]

This course provides an overview of environmental chemistry as it applies to the practice of environmental engineering and science. After completing this course, you will be able to solve acid-base/alkalinity, metal speciation and dissolution, and basic redox chemistry problems.

CEE 756: Environmental Chemistry [Syllabus]

This course provides an overview of environmental chemical kinetics and transformations as they apply to the practice of environmental engineering and science. After completing this course, you will be familiar with the quantitative treatment of organic and metallic pollutants in environmental systems, chemical kinetics, applied redox chemistry in natural and engineered systems, surface reactions, and photochemical transformations.

CEE 771: Anthropogenic Contaminants in the Environment [Syllabus]

This course provides a detailed analysis of the occurrence, fate, transport, and remediation of anthropogenic contaminants in the environment. After completing this course, you will be familiar with mechanisms of contaminant transport and removal along with the application of attenuation mechanisms as they apply to novel treatment technologies.
