Previously offered in 2014
ObjectivesThe course provides the capstone experience for the environmental engineering program:

A1 Understand and apply environmental engineering design philosophies.

A2 Apply research and design skills acquired in earlier courses in environmental engineering and related disciplines to solve design problems and conduct investigations.

A3 Communicate design solutions.

A4 Develop an appreciation of the social, economic and institutional factors affecting environmental engineering design and investigation.

A5 Develop the ability to function effectively as a member of a design team.
ContentBroadly covers analysis of environmental problems and development of sustainable, economic solutions. This may include investigation for environmental impact assessment and design of pollution control systems. Students typically visit sites of interest, and interact with a broad range of professionals, regulatory authorities and practicing engineers.

One major design project is undertaken, led by an outside consulting engineer with internal academic supervision.
