This course is designed to integrate the real-world problem solving experience into the course curriculum through project / lab environment. Students will study the air pollution sources and fundamental mechanisms of their impact on the environment and human health, and how automotive emission can be measured and controlled. In particular, measurement of particulate emission deposited in a diesel particulate filter will be studied. Here the students will have a chance to optimally design the sensor components. The course topics are chosen in this context so that they align with the local industry / lab well. Topics in emission control technologies, including sensors, control mechanisms, remedial systems will be taught and combined into the course projects that students will complete over the course of a semester. Class Notes: If you are an undergraduate student & want to enroll in this course, please see your academic advisor.
