Undergraduate Students
In Civil and Environmental Engineering Department an advisor is assigned to each undergraduate student when they join the department. Each faculty are given roughly the same number of students. Typically I advised 15-20 undergraduate students each semester (last names starting with A thru Gh) until Spring 2010.

Courses Taught at Louisiana State University (1991- 1998)

  • Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulics Laboratory
  • Water and Wastewater Treatment
  • Biological Unit Operations in Environmental Engineering (Graduate Course, co-instructor)
