Class Introduction to Environmental Engineering

  • Presentation


    The Curricular Unit of Introduction to Environmental Problems has as main objective to establish the first contact of students with environmental engineering subjects on a prospective basis for development of subsequent courses of degree in Environmental Engineering.

  • Code


  • Syllabus


    - Framework and specificity of the UC in the context of the Degree in 
    - Engineering of theEnvironment;
    - Degradation Factors of the State of the Environment, Natural and Environmental Risks;
    - Environmental Technologies;
    - Areas of expertise of an environmental engineer;
    - Environmental Degradation (soil, waste, water, air)
  • Objectives


    The curricular unit main goal is introducing current subjects related to the environment, intended to stimulate students' motivation and critical opinion, helping on clarifying key aspects of future professional activity, as well as introduce the way of an Engineer "thinks and acts" in daily situations.

    • In this Curricular Unit (UC) it is intended that students: Know the areas of performance of an environmental engineer;
    • Acquire knowledge regarding environmental concerns, international milestones and a comprehensive view of European and national policies;
    • Develop interpersonal skills: group work and communication in heterogeneous training teams.
  • Teaching methodologies and assessment

    Teaching methodologies and assessment

    Presentation of the topics defined in the UC program will be carried out using expository and interactive methods, always encouraging discussion of the subjects presented. Whenever necessary/possible/appropriate, real cases/case studies will be presented with the aim of increasing knowledge and awareness of environmental issues.
