Ecological engineering is the design of sustainable systems that derive their energy and materials from natural and engineered ecosystems. These designs aim to integrate human society with the natural environment for the benefit of both. Applications include engineered wetlands, water sensitive urban design, waterway and habitat restoration, and integrated food-energy-water systems. Relevant tools include stormwater management models and life cycle assessment.
Develop a broader appreciation of the interconnectedness of technical, social, cultural and economic issues in ecological engineering applicationsBe able to model surface water quality and quantity in an urban environment, as an example of quantifying ecological processes and external influencing factorsEvaluate site characteristics and issues, and select ecologically appropriate design solutions to address these issuesHave a firm understanding of ecosystems, their assessment and valuation

Test 1 will cover material from Dr Charters’ lectures only (L1-19). The Final Exam will cover material from Dr O’Sullivan and Dr Bello-Mendoza’s lectures only (L20-36).1. You cannot pass this course unless you achieve a mark of at least 40% in each of the mid-semester test and the final exam. A student who narrowly fails to achieve 40% in either the test or exam, but who performs very well in the other, may be eligible for a pass.2. All assignments must be submitted by the due date via Learn electronically AND a printed copy to the box designated for this course on Level 2. Late submissions will not be accepted. If a student is unable to complete and submit an assignment by the deadline due to personal circumstances beyond their control they should discuss this with the lecturer involved as soon as possible.
