CEE 70: Environmental Science and Technology (ENGR 90)

Introduction to environmental quality and the technical background necessary for understanding environmental issues, controlling environmental degradation, and preserving air and water quality. Material balance concepts for tracking substances in the environmental and engineering systems.
Terms: Aut, Sum | Units: 3 | UG Reqs: GER:DB-EngrAppSci, WAY-AQR | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit
Instructors: Kopperud, R. (PI)

CEE 73: Understanding Water: Tools and Approaches from Science and Engineering

Water physics and chemistry shape our world. Without water there is no life, no biology. This class provides an introduction to these basic sciences as applied to water and considers how they interact to give water its critical role in the processes that sustain, and sometimes poison, our planet. We will explore both the natural world and the engineered systems critical to civilization.

CEE 107S: Energy Resources: Fuels and Tools (CEE 207S)

Energy is a vital part of our daily lives. This course examines where that energy comes from, and the advantages and disadvantages across different fuels. Contextual analysis of energy decisions for transportation and electricity generation around the world. Energy resources covered include oil, biomass, natural gas, nuclear, hydropower, wind, solar, geothermal, and emerging technologies. Prerequisites: Algebra. Note: may not be taken by students who have completed CEE 173A, CEE 207 or EARTHSYS 103.
Terms: Sum | Units: 3 | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

CEE 15SC: Energy in the West (ENERGY 10SC, POLISCI 23SC)

Students will explore practical, social, and political issues surrounding energy and the West. Using Wyoming--the largest energy provider in the United States--as a case study, students will consider the availability and viability of coal, oil, and gas (including coal-bed methane production and fracking), CO2 capture and storage, hydropower, and wind and solar energy. They will consider questions of the security of energy supply, global warming, environmental impacts, and economics and public policy, with particular attention to the so-called water-energy nexus, a critically important issue for Wyoming. nnStudents will spend the first week on campus, then travel to various field sites in Wyoming, including a coal mine, a CO2 capture plant, a CO2 enhanced oil recovery project, a wind power plant, a hydropower plant, and a shale-gas site. They will meet with relevant policy experts and public officials to consider such questions as: nn¿ Where our energy supplies come from and how energy is extracted from the ground and transported to urban centers where it is used;nn¿ The nexus between energy and water issues;nn¿ Tradeoffs and co-benefits between different types of energy supplies, including energy security, environmental impacts, and economic development; nn¿ Public policy issues surrounding energy, the environment, and the economy. nnDuring the trip, students will work on group projects to evaluate energy mix and will present their work at the conclusion of the course. Participants will return to Stanford on September 19. Travel to, from, and within Wyoming will be provided (except incidentals) and is made possible by the Bill Lane Center for the American West and Sophomore College.
