Four (4) fourteen week courses were developed to introduce freshman engineering students to "realistic engineering" through the design and analysis of an environmentally based problem. These courses involved faculty from the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and the Department of Chemical Engineering, Chemistry and Environmental Science team teaching the course. This type of offering is ideal for interdisciplinary collaboration by faculty, requires very little resource investment, and is easily instituted by other institutions.
