The following is the list of courses taught within the Environmental Engineering and Science program. An instructor is listed for those courses that are almost always taught by the same faculty member; none is listed for courses that are team taught or taught on a rotating basis by several faculty members. If the course is described in the University Catalog, the course number here is linked to that description; otherwise, the course is described here. In the University Catalog, those courses that have been scheduled for the next semester are linked to the University Class Schedule (which gives day, time, and room information).
