  Courses taught by Desiree Tullos:


  • BEE 102: Ecological Engineering II (Spring- every year)

The purpose of this course is to introduce students to tools commonly used to analyze systems in Ecological Engineering, with an emphasis on real-world practices (e.g. anaerobic digesters, living machines, dam removal, phytoremediation, treatment wetlands).

  • BEE 312: Ecohydraulic Engineering (Winter- every year)

BEE 312 students on a field trip

This course covers the theory and design of hydraulic systems for ecological engineering applications, including center pivotsystems, ram pumps, large wood structures for fish habitat, stormwater wetlands, and fish-friendly culverts. Content emphasizes applying the continuity, energy, and momentum equations to engineering pipes and open channels for minimizing impacts of humans on the environment, via modifying flows, reducing water and/or energy demands, and creating habitat. This design-based course also exposes students to costs, feasibility, and uncertainty in design.


  • BEE 446/546: River Engineering (Spring- odd years)

This project-based class provides an introduction to river mechanics, ecology, modeling, management, and engineering.
