CE 421/521- Environmental Biotechnology


Environmental biotechnology is an emerging field within environmental engineering.  It encompasses the use of natural and genetically engineered microorganisms to provide benefit to mankind and the environment.  The course will focus on the physiology of microorganisms, biochemical reactions of microbes, the environmental conditions that favor their growth, and the protection of public health from pathogens. Current literature articles will be discussed in a group setting.

The prerequisite for CE 421/521 is an introductory undergraduate course in environmental engineering principles.
