College(s)Contact NameStatement Summary
College of Natural ResourcesTerrie LitzenbergerCourse is designed for SMT majors. There is no conflict with ET courses.
This course will not require any new resources.

The major goals of this course are to introduce the student to:


1. the sources and fates of common industrial pollutants,


2. alternate chemicals and processes that minimize or eliminate environmental pollution


3. how chemical pollutants are determined in environmental samples such as air, soil, waste and water, and 


4. how chemical pollutants are regulated 


Student Learning Outcomes

After completing this course, the student will be able to:


1. Describe the sources of industrial chemicals/pollutants, their hazards, and their transport and fate in the environment (i.e., in air, water, waste and soil)

2. Identify alternate chemicals for industrial operations that minimize or eliminate environmental pollution

3. Apply sampling theory and related statistical analyses to measurement of pollutants in "real world" samples

4. Apply modern analytical chemical principles to the identification and quantification of industrial chemicals in air, water, and solid materials and interpret the resulting data

5. Explain the regulatory framework for industrial chemicals/pollutants
