CEE 20 (4 Units) Engineering Problem Solving with Matlab. This course provides
an introduction to Matlab and a designed to develop a suite of problem solving
skills useful for upper division engineering courses and graduate courses.
Topics include: running Matlab, visualizing functions, script and function
programming, finding roots of non-linear equations, solving linear systems
of equations, least squares fitting of curves to data, solving nonlinear systems
of equations, and integrating ordinary differential equations.
CEE 171 (4 Units) Infrastructure Hydraulics. This course presents methods
of analyzing flow in pipelines and pipeline networks, and designing such systems.
Course also covers flow measurement methods and an introduction to open channel
flow. Course involves weekly homework assignments, wet-laboratory experiments,
and computer laboratory exercises.
CEE 178/278 (3 Units) River and Estuarine Flow. This course covers steady
and unsteady channel hydraulics. Steady flow topics include uniform flow,
rapidly varied flow, gradually varied flow. Unsteady flow topics include flood
routing and tidal oscillations.
CEE 277 (3 Units) Transport Processes in Rivers and Estuaries. This course
presents an introduction to the mathematical modeling of mixing in surface
waters. The concepts of diffusion, turbulent "eddy" diffusion, and shear flow
dispersion are covered. Students learn to build simple computer models to
predict water quality.
CEE 279A (3 Units) Computational Methods for Environmental Hydraulics. This
course covers advanced topics related to computer modeling of hydrodynamics
and water quality in surface waters. Emphasis of the course varies from year
CEE 20 is usually offered annually Spring quarter and CEE 171 is offered
annually Winter quarter. One of the remaining courses is typically offered
each year as well. Schedules appear roughly 3 months in advance of each quarter
on the UC Irvine Schedule
of Classes. Professional engineers interested in upper division/graduate
courses may petition to enroll through UC Irvine
