Major River Systems of Florida(3 crs)
Prerequisites: "PHY2048: Calculus-Based Physics I"AND "PHY2049: Calculus-Based Physics II"AND "MAC2312: (GM) Calculus II"Co-requisites: None
Due to the unique geology and ecology of Florida, its river systems are vitally important to the co-existence of man and nature in this area. The course will provide an in-depth look at current and future issues of the major river systems (St. Johns, Kissimmee, Apalachicola, etc. in Florida). It will focus on the issues that a civil engineer will come in contact within his/her career. This course will serve to integrate the student's perspective of the human impact on the river, the legal framework and issues of water quality management, and the biotic perspective of a healthy ecosystem. Reading material will include online state river reports. A significant research paper will be required of students which examines one aspect of a major river system whether it be human induced changes, physical or biotic processes, the impact of some physiographic feature, or an aspect ecosystem. Prerequisites: "PHY2048: Calculus-Based Physics I" AND "PHY2049: Calculus-Based Physics II"AND "MAC2312: (GM) Calculus II".
Coastal Processes (3 crs)
The lectures feature background theory, discussion and a detailed examination of important coastal processes with engineering applications. Course subjects cover a wide range of topics to provide a breadth of knowledge for subjects related to coastal study. Topics include coastal zone features, water wave mechanics, field measurement techniques, longshore and cross-shore sediment transport analysis, beach nourishment theory, coastal structures, tidal inlets, and coastal management. The course presents material at a level necessary to understand many intermediate and advanced processes and relationships. Prerequisites: "PHY2048: Calculus-Based Physics I" AND "PHY2049: Calculus-Based Physics II" AND "MAC2312: (GM) Calculus II".
School of Engineering/Civil Engineering - Undergraduate
Introduction to Coastal & Port Engineering (3 crs)
This course provides an introduction to the coastal environment with a focus on engineering and science applications. The course also introduces concepts important to port operations and design as related to the waterside engineering aspects. Designed for upper-level undergraduate students, the course introduces important topics and physical processes necessary to understand and work in the coastal environment. The course provides the foundation for more advanced study of water wave mechanics, coastal processes, and coastal and port engineering design. Prerequisites: "PHY2048: Calculus-Based Physics I" AND "PHY2049: Calculus-Based Physics II" AND "MAC2312: (GM) Calculus II".
