ENR1611Engineered Systems and Structures in Natural Environments3 ch (2C/2L)
This course introduces students to the design process when designing structures and developing production associated with natural resources and the environment. Structures examined may include forest roads, small water management structures such as culverts and earthen dams, retaining walls, and landfills. Production processes may include forest harvesting, mineral extractions, and factory activities such as wood processing and seedling production. Impacts engineered structures and production on the natural environment and ways to mitigate those effects are essential elements of these design processes.
