 Dual Enrollment Course for APS Students

During the spring semesters, the Center for Water and the Environment, in conjunction with the Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering, offers a course on Water Resources and Sustainability to Albuquerque-area high school students.  APS students receive both high school and college credit for taking the course.  The class has been offered in the APS Enrichment Center and ACE Leadership High School. Details are below for the Spring 2018 semester.

Course Title:  CE 160-004: Introduction to Sustainability and Water Resources Engineering

Do you know where your water comes from? Are you interested in learning more about how water interacts with our natural and built environment? In this dual-credit course, we focus on issues and potential solutions related to water and the environment. The purpose of the course is to introduce students to water resources and sustainability concepts, and how scientists and engineers create solutions to challenging problems. Students will:

  • Learn about the hydrologic cycle
  • Discover how water affects every aspect of our lives
  • Learn about the theory, tools and techniques of engineering design and creative problem solving
  • Use design software (AutoCAD) for developing conceptual designs
  • Visit working laboratories at UNM Civil Engineering Department
  • Explore existing water resources facilities in our city
  • Observe working hydraulic models of water quality features AND get hands on experience building and designing your own version

Prerequisites: Successful completion of Algebra I plus either Physics, Chemistry or Environmental Science

This course fulfills the requirement for Civil Engineering Design (CE160L) for first-year students in the Civil Engineering Department at UNM.
