CIE 442/642 - Treatment Processes in Environmental Engineering

Fall Semester

Tue & Thur

11:00 am - 12:20 pm

4 Credits

This course introduces the fundamental chemical, physical and biological principles underlying the design and operation of effective drinking water and wastewater treatment systems. Major topics include water demand and regulations, reactor analysis, coagulation and flocculation, sedimentation, granular filtration, membrane filtration, reverse osmosis, disinfection, wastewater characteristics and regulations, preliminary and primary treatment, wastewater microbiology, secondary treatment, nutrient removal, and infrastructure issues of emerging concern to water professionals.

CIE 430/630 - Environmental Organic Chemistry

Spring Semester

Tue & Thur

3:30 pm - 4:50 pm

3 Credits

This course focuses on partitioning and transformation processes that govern the behavior of organic chemicals in aquatic environments. The course is structured as two major learning modules: (1) physical partitioning and (2) chemical transformations. The physical partitioning module covers volatilization, dissolution, sorption, and uptake processes that control the transfer of organic chemicals between the environmental phases of interest: water, air, soil/sediment, and biota. The chemical transformation module covers the mechanisms and kinetics of hydrolysis, reduction, oxidation, and photolysis that control the persistence of organic chemicals in the environment.

Syracuse Mass Spectrometry Workshop

Winter Break

This annual half-day workshop invites regional mass spectrometry users to share the novel applications of GC/LC-HRMS workflows in environmental, biological, and clinical research. The first two workshops were held in December 2017 and January 2019, respectively. We have had participants from C. W. Baker High School, SU, SUNY-ESF, SUNY-Upstate Medical University, Cornell University, Wayne State University, Syracuse Research Corporation, Inc., and Bausch and Lomb, Inc. Stay tuned for our next workshop!
