Content

This unit has been developed to give students broad understanding of global environmental issues such as climate change, ozone depletion, population stress, ocean pollution and loss of biodiversity from a systems perspective and how they may influence the natural and human environment. Students will be asked to consider the impacts of these global issues at local, regional and global levels and understand how environmental engineering plays a role in delivering solutions for a sustainable future.  Students will work individually and in teams to identify, understand and analyse local contexts of complex global issues and identify the risks and future implications of those issues.  At the completion of the unit students will be able to assess and critique current solutions and directions from an environmental engineering perspective and recognise the complexity of the problem.
