Welcome and Overview
This course guide is provided for Environmental Science ES-27: Public Health Engineering. Its purpose is to help you locate resources for your assignments and the means to evaluate them, as well as to become more familiar with the literature of engineering and related disciplines that address these issues.
Noteworthy Aspects of the Engineering Literature for Environmental Health & Safety
- Environmental Health is a multidisciplinary topic. It requires investigating not only resources in civil and environmental engineering but also materials in public health, medicine, toxicology, statistics, and the natural and social sciences.
- These disciplines apply different vocabularies and terminologies. These differences impact the terms you use in search strategies. Reference books like encyclopedias, dictionaries, and online database thesauri are useful tools for locating discipline-specific terms.
- Both the engineering and the health related literature are broad and include many different formats. For more on the full scope of engineering literature, see the Engineering Literature Overview.
