ENSC 4600 - Environmental Nanotechnology (3)
Prerequisites: Completion (or concurrent course listing) of one-year long introductory physical science course and one physical science course at either 2000 or 3000 level, or approval from the instructor This course is designed to introduce both fundamental theories and practical technologies practiced in academic institutions, environmental engineering firms, and regulatory agencies in the U.S. and abroad to upper-level students in the department. Students will learn basic concepts behind nanoscale science and engineering practices. Students will then participate in several representative projects of real-life cases that they will encounter in their future professional and/or academic careers. At least two projects related to air and water contamination and remediation techniques will be introduced in the class as a way to facilitate their learning process. This course will also provide students in the class opportunities to operate several key instruments such as scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and electric classifier and condensation particle counter (SMPS as a combined form) for engaging in nano industries. A visit to nanotechnology center in town will be required during the semester.
