Course Aim
Upon completion of the course, students should be able to

• communicate knowledge, orally and in writing, on environmental engineering regarding mining, mineral, and civil engineering; 

• conduct environmental and work environmental consequence analyses of mining, mineral, and civil engineering project, and compare alternatives using either traditional or recycled materials;
• suggest suitable measures to reduce or prevent undesired environmental or work environmental consequence; and
• apply the basics of systematic work environment management.

The course contents are divided into basic environmental science, waste management, and work environment. The focus in basic environmental science is on environmental consequences resulting from the use of material and energy resources, and how they can be treated. Waste management includes a general introduction to waste generation and management, waste characterization, and use of waste as construction materials. Work environment includes basic knowledge on work environment issues, systematic work environment management, and methods for investigating and managing work environment questions. These areas of study, together with exercises, provide the basis for the student projects. The projects include environmental and work environmental consequences and comparisons between use of either traditional or waste material.

In the theoretical parts of the course, the students read assigned material. From the material, the formulate questions and answers. The material and the answers are then discussed with the teacher. Group projects are conducted in discrete steps. Each is reported and evaluated separately, and includes independent studies of relevant literature.

Examination is in the form of assignments, written and oral reports of the group projects, and a written exam. Active participation in discussions is included in the examination. Grading is based on an overall assessment of all course activities.
