CE 409: Hazardous Waste Treatment and Site Remediation: Find Case Studies

This research guide will provide resources to environmental engineering literature particularly for hazardous waste treatment and remediation.

What is a case study?

"Engineering Case", "Case", and "Case Study" are used loosely and interchangeably in engineering. Others may prefer broader or narrower definitions, but to us an Engineering Case is: an account of an engineering activity, event or problem containing some of the background and complexities actually encountered by an engineer. A case is used in engineering courses to enhance learning about engineering principles and practices. - GMU LibGuide

Use "case study" or "case studies" with engineering terms.
