OEH 6553 Occupational & Environmental Toxicology (transiting to hybrid/online)
The course is offered in Spring semester. The purpose of this 3-credit hours course is to introduce the fundamental and critique aspects of human and environmental toxicology, and applications in both environment and workplaces. The course is designed to provide the students with the concepts of toxicology terminology, toxicokinetics, metabolism, carcinogenesis, and system toxicity. The course also covers the basics of human health and ecological risk assessment. The focus of the course will be on using the knowledge to understand the health effects of exposing to toxic substances in the environment and workplaces. [detail]

OEH 6752 Occupational Hazards Control
The course is offered in Spring semester. The 2-credits course will introduce students to basic principles of ventilation and other engineering technologies to control occupational hazards (mostly gases/vapors and aerosols). Basic chemical and physical sciences necessary will be covered in the course. The course prepares students to have an in-depth knowledge of selecting, designing, and operating industrial exhaust ventilation system (general dilution ventilation, single-branch and multi-branch exhaust ventilation). The course will also discuss worker protection strategies, management issues, and implementation skills. [detail]

OEH 5013 Environmental Health (online)
The course is offered in every Fall as an alternative form (full-online) of the core course. The purpose of the class is to introduce MPH and other students to the field of environmental health, through a broad understanding of current environmental health issues, causes, and methodological approaches in the global health context. This core course will give an overview for students interested in studying environmental pollution, exposure, risk, toxicology, and health. Topics being discussed in the class include diseases related to environmental factors, vulnerable populations, common toxicants, risks, as well as occupational health hazards. [detail]

OEH 6683 Applied Modeling Technology in Occupational and Environmental Health
This is a 6000 doctoral-level course tentatively starts in Fall 2016 and will be offered once every two years. The purpose of this course is to introduce critical modeling principles and applications used in occupational and environmental health (OEH) research field. Upon completion of the class, students should be able to understand the principles of commonly used models, select and apply models to assess occupational exposures, environmental quality, and human health risk. Students will also learn the methods to evaluate and validate model data and outcome, as well as use models to support the decision-making process. [detail]

OEH 5743 Industrial Hygiene & Environmental Measurements

The course is currently offered in May intersession and will be switched to Spring semester starting 2015. I am giving guest lectures on "aerosol personal sampling in the occupational environment" and "ambient particulate matters (PM) measurement". [detail]

OEH 5723 Fundamentals of Occupational and Environmental Health Sciences

I am currently giving guest lecture "Atmospheric pollutants transportation and fate" in the fundamentals course.

OEH 5001 Introduction to Occupational and Environmental Health
(online open course under development)

This is a prelude online course to the MS program in IH/EHS. The purpose of the course is to help bridge students from non-science/non-engineering background to suit in before their first semester. The course covers most of the necessary skills and competencies to survive MS in IH/EHS program, such as quantitative skills and science background. The course is built on Google Course Builder and will be open to students both inside and outside OU. [Link]
