This engineering course explores the development of tools and technologies to protect and restore environmental systems sustainably, using contemporary Scandinavian case studies. We assess local environmental impacts of human activities relating to water consumption, waste production, transportation, energy, air quality, heat, and urban ecosystems, applying methods, techniques and modeling to describe, quantify, and solve environmental problems through collaborative engineering solutions. The course is problem-based and experiential, with course-integrated travel throughout the region, and hands-on projects with real-world applications.
