Introduction to Environmental Engineering
ENVT 0002
Individual Assignment
(Case Study 2)
Date of submission –
18 December 2017
OBJECTIVE:
Assist students on analyzing a control strategy related to air quality and identify and apply a set
of specific techniques and measures to achieve reductions in air pollution to attain an air quality
standard or goal.
LEARNING OUTCOMES:
1. Demonstrate an understanding of principles underlying environmental engineering
design
2. Identify stakeholders and present alternative viewpoints on engineering projects
3. Take into consideration the complex, local and global, social political cultural and
ecological contexts in performing a technical role or designing an engineering system
4. Take into consideration the impact of decisions on the environment and society.
TASK:
Every student is required to propose control strategies for managing air quality from land
transportation to achieve air pollution reduction. Consider the following aspects in order to
design an effective air quality control strategy:
1. Controlling sources of pollution: Pollution prevention approaches to reduce, eliminate, or
prevent pollution at its source, should be considered. Examples are to use less toxic raw
materials or fuels, use a less-polluting industrial process, and to improve the efficiency of
the process such as the use of sustainable manufacturing.
Introduction to Environmental Engineering-ENVT 0002-FALL-17
2. Controlling emissions related to transportation can include emission controls on vehicles
as well as use of cleaner fuels.
3. Discuss stakeholder engagement and public participation
4. Make sure that your design or strategy benefited both the environment and society

B. Provide a short description of the project, including what you propose, who it will benefit.
D. Strong concluding statement.
Step 2 – Project Description (Maximum one Page)
This section defines the project objectives, describes the method of solution, and defines staffing
and administrative requirements. Include the following sections (each of these sections should
have a separate section heading and may have more than one paragraph).
1. Objectives – State your objectives as measurable outcomes of the solution. Be specific make sure your solution is achievable within a specific time frame and measurable.
2. Method – Describe the specific action items (actions that need to be taken in order to meet
the objectives). Answer the following questions: How, When, and Why.
3. Management Plan – Present “Time Plan” Only in your project.
Introduction to Environmental Engineering-ENVT 0002-FALL-17
Step 3 – Conclusion (Approximately 1 paragraph)
Review your proposal briefly. Restate what you want to do and why it’s important.
Tips:
1. Proofread! Check spelling and punctuation.

Plagiarism
A. First offence of plagiarism
a. If a student is caught first time in an act of plagiarism during his/her course of
study in any assignment other than project work, the student will be allowed to resubmit the assignment once, within a maximum period of one week. However, a
penalty of deduction of 25% of the marks obtained for the resubmitted work will
be imposed.
b. Period of re-submission: The student will have to re-submit the work one week

awarded a zero.
d. Re-submission of the work beyond the maximum period of one week will not be
accepted and the work will be awarded a zero.
e. If the student fails the module and has a proven case of academic integrity

violation in this module, the student is required to re-register the module
C. Third Offence of plagiarism
Introduction to Environmental Engineering-ENVT 0002-FALL-17

each working day following the last date of submission till the date of actual submission.
Assessment documents submitted beyond a period of one week after the last date of submission
will not be accepted and will be awarded a zero for that assessment. In cases where the
submission has been delayed due to extenuating circumstances, the student may be permitted to
submit the work without imposing the late submission policy stated above. The extended period
of submission will be one week from the original last date of submission. In such cases, the
student is expected to submit the supporting certificates on or before the original last date of
submission of the assessment and the decision of extension rests with faculty responsible for the
assessment .The late submission policy shall be applied if the student fails to submit the work
within one week of the original last date of submission.
Students may contact their teachers for clarification on specific details of the submission time if
