    MTHE 493 Engineering Mathematics Project FW* | K7.5


    Lecture: No
    Lab: Yes
    Tutorial: Yes
    This is the capstone design course for Mathematics and Engineering. Students must work in groups, with a typical group size being between two and four members. Projects are selected early in the year from a list put forward by Mathematics and Engineering faculty members who will also supervise the projects. There is a heavy emphasis on engineering design and professional practice. All projects must be open-ended and design oriented, and students are expected to undertake and demonstrate, in presentations and written work, a process by which the design facets of the project are approached. Projects must involve social, environmental, and economic factors, and students are expected to address these factors comprehensively in presentations and written work. Students are assessed individually and as a group on their professional conduct during the course of the project.

    SURP 851 Environmental Policy W | 3


    Lecture: 3
    Lab: 0
    Tutorial: 0
    This course will examine environmental policies in urban and regional contexts. Tools used by policy makers (e.g. risk assessment and management, quality indices, evaluation, impact assessment, mitigation and compensation) and the constraints they encounter (e.g. uncertainty, legal and administrative constraints and financial costs) will be reviewed. Substantive areas to be examined will be focused on the relationship between the built environment and the quality of air and water as well as the use of land resources. Specific cases will vary from year to year. The scope of policies and readings will range from local to global; integration will be stressed.
