Description

Engineering within planetary boundaries. Social, cultural, and economic factors. Risk and systems. Engineering ethics. Case studies of mitigation and adaptation options.

Therefore, the aim of this course is to enable you to tackle system-wide challenges, such as climate change. Such problems cannot be solved in isolation. Ultimately, due to the dire situation our communities face, we aim to enable and empower you to actively consider climate change in every aspect of your professional career.

Learning Outcomes

As civil and natural resources engineers, you will:

●        Understand complex systems problems: the complex, multi-directional relationships between climate change, communities, and the engineer’s role
●        Formulate and critically evaluate interventions into complex systems: strategies to mitigate and adapt to climate change
●        Act as kaitiaki–stewards of the natural environment–and act and communicate ethically and legally, with respect to the diversity of interests and people affected by climate change
●        Manage risk and uncertainty
●        Continually learn, integrate ideas and perspectives, and adapt as an engineer in a changing environment.

Notes

The Department of Civil and Natural Resources Engineering recognises that its graduates need to be equipped with foundational knowledge of the major issues confronting global civilisation over the 21st century, among which climate change, population increase, economic and societal change. Further, students need to understand explicitly how their engineering skills translate into addressing these issues for the sustainability and betterment of their own careers and organisations they will work for, and for wider society. Sustainable Engineering for a Changing Climate will provide such a foundation and array of pathways for the Civil and Natural Resources Engineering 2nd Professional Year cohort.
