CEE 107S: Understanding Energy - Essentials (CEE 207S)

Energy is the number one contributor to climate change and has significant consequences for our society, political system, economy, and environment. Energy is also a fundamental driver of human development and opportunity. Students will learn the fundamentals of each energy resource -- including significance and potential, drivers and barriers, policy and regulation, and social, economic, and environmental impacts -- and will be able to put this in the context of the broader energy system. Both depletable and renewable energy resources are covered, including oil, natural gas, coal, nuclear, biomass and biofuel, hydroelectric, wind, solar thermal and photovoltaics (PV), geothermal, and ocean energy, with cross-cutting topics including electricity, storage, climate change and greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), sustainability, green buildings, energy efficiency, transportation, and the developing world. The course is 3 units, which includes lecture, readings and videos, assignments, and one more »

The course is 3 units, which includes lecture, readings and videos, assignments, and one required off-site field trip. Field trip offerings differ each quarter but may include Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant, Shasta dam, Tesla Gigafactory, NextEra wind farm, San Ardo oil field, Geyser¿s geothermal power plants, NEXTracker Solar PV, etc. Enroll for 4 units to also attend the Workshop, an interactive discussion section on cross-cutting topics that meets once per week for 80 minutes (timing TBD).This is a course for all: pre-majors and majors, with any background - no prior energy knowledge necessary. For a course that covers all of this plus goes more in-depth, check out CEE 107A/207A/ EarthSys 103 Understanding Energy offered in the autumn and spring quarters (students should not take both for credit).

CEE 146S: Engineering Economics and Sustainability (ENGR 60)

Terms: Aut, Spr, Sum | Units: 3
Instructors: Lepech, M. (PI)

CEE 170: Aquatic and Organic Chemistry for Environmental Engineering (CEE 270M)

This course provides a solid foundation in the most important aspects of general, aquatic and organic chemistry. Nearly all of aspects environmental engineering apply the chemistry concepts discussed in this course. Given that each of the chemistry subjects to be addressed are standalone classes, this class highlights only the most relevant material to environmental engineering. The class focuses on developing general background skills needed for subsequent classes in environmental engineering focusing on their applications, although certain applications will be discussed for illustration.

CEE 176G: Sustainability Design Thinking (CEE 276G)

Application design thinking to make sustainability compelling, impactful and realizable. Analysis of contextual, functional and human-centered design thinking techniques to promote sustainable design of products and environments by holistically considering space, form, environment, energy, economics, and health. Includes Studio project work in prototyping, modeling, testing, and realizing sustainable design ideas.

CEE 177L: Smart Cities & Communities (CEE 277L)

A city is comprised of people and a complex system of systems connected by data. A nexus of forces ¿ IoT, open data, analytics, AI, and systems of engagement ¿ present new opportunities to increase the efficiency of urban systems, improve the efficacy of public services, and assure the resiliency of the community. Systems studied include: water, energy, transportation, buildings, food production, and social services. The roles of policy and behavior change as well as the risks of smart cities will be discussed. How cities are applying innovation to address the unprecedented challenges of COVID-19 will also be explored.
