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 biosystems. Relevant tools include environmental management and models of material mass flow and life cycle assessment.
To advance systems thinking in engineering problem-solving To deepen students understanding of ecological engineering principles and knowledge base To explore how engineering solutions can be applied to a wide variety of environmental challenges in both New Zealand and international contexts. Examples include waterway and habitat restoration, wastewater treatment, and the food-energy-water nexus. For students to experience a variety of projects at various stages of the engineering process, including research studies, conceptual and detailed design development, pilot-scale studies and fully implemented projects To help prepare students for the research process by undertaking critical analysis of journalarticles that are related to Ecological Engineering applications.
