ES 206 - Environmental Engineering and the Science of Sustainability
An application of ecological and ecosystem-based concepts and principles to the design of regenerative solutions for water-, waste-, soil-, and energy-related environmental problems. Using natural science methods as a foundation, students will critically evaluate and construct systems for a range of applications, including waste water treatment, brownfield restoration, composting, anaerobic digestion, and biofabrication. The overall goals of the course are to appreciate the complexity of environmental problems and potential solutions and to understand how discoveries in the primary scientific literature can be applied to design more efficient and sustainable closed-loop systems. and or and placement at the AQR level or completion of an FQR course or QR1.
Note(s): Three hours of lecture, three hours of lab per week. Fulfills AQR requirement.
