Sustainable Engineering (3) A course on engineering which uses ecological principles to minimize waste and maximally use input materials.
ENVE 430 Sustainable Engineering (3)
This course is for upper-level and graduate students in engineering science, environmental engineering, engineering technology, or environmental pollution control. Sustainable engineering is a term that describes engineering which maximizes the use of all input materials and minimizes waste using principles of ecology. The course is designed to train engineers to use the principles of sustainable engineering in their practice. Engineers responsible for the design and operation of industrial systems have a social responsibility for not harming the environment. The topics include pollution prevention, waste minimization, process economics and resource management. Evaluation is based on both examinations and a project.
