COURSES AT NJIT:
CE 645 - ROCK MECHANICS (3 CREDITS)
This graduate-level course focuses on theoretical and experimental rock mechanics and rock engineering covering laboratory measurements (nano-, micro-, and meso-scales) and field testing of rocks. Students also learn the mechanics of discontinuous and porous media located in surface and subsurface environments.
CE 644 - APPLIED ENGINEERING GEOLOGY (3 CREDITS)
This graduate-level course helps students learn how to apply engineering principles to predict and mitigate natural and artificial geo-hazards, including the availability, selection, and use of geomaterials (rock and soil) in infrastructural projects. The course also explores at field scale the engineering impacts of natural geologic hazards, including landslides, sinkholes, earthquakes, and subsiding geomaterials. Also includes full-scale site reconnaissance and characterization projects.
CE 662 - DEEP UNDERGROUND ENGINEERING AND RESOURCES (3 CREDITS)
This graduate-level course provides students with fundamental and applied engineering knowledge critical for identifying, designing, managing, extracting, exchanging, storing, and protecting various economically valuable materials from deep underground. Also, this course covers the governing mechanisms controlling the removal of underground geomaterials (rock and soil) to create optimum space for extraction/injection/storage of economically valuable and sustainable materials/resources at varying deep underground conditions. e.g., vertical and directional drilling; wellbore cementing; foundations of solar and wind energy systems; underground carbon transport and sequestration; underground nuclear waste disposal; geothermal energy pile; and risk assessment of underground engineering.
CE 463 - ENERGY GEOTECHNICS AND SUSTAINABILITY (3 CREDITS)
This undergraduate-level course provides basic knowledge on the application of geotechnical and energy engineering principles in the design and analyses of thermo-hydro-chemo-mechanical processes encountered in extracting, exchanging, storing, and protecting underground engineering infrastructure, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate global climate change. Covers basic and applied concepts of underground engineering and underground infrastructure for onshore and offshore resources (e.g., foundations of solar panels and wind turbines).
COURSES AT HOPE COLLEGE:
ENG 346 - FLUID MECHANICS (3 CREDITS)
This undergraduate engineering course focuses on the properties of a fluid and the concepts of fluid statics, the integral and differential analyses of fluid motion, and incompressible flows. Applications of these concepts to various engineering situations, such as propulsion systems, aerodynamics, and piping systems, are also examined.
ENG 224 - MECHANICS OF MATERIALS LAB (1 CREDIT)
This undergraduate course introduces students to fundamental concepts in mechanical testing to determine the basic mechanical properties of a range of materials, including metals, woods, composites, and elastomers.
