Reducing our ecologic footprint
...through innovative discovery, life-cycle thinking, and sustainable management of natural resources. Understanding the dynamic, complex processes that link human activity and ecological systems is essential to improving the way we manage our natural resources and develop solutions to the environmental threats facing the world today. Effective discovery and learning in this area will require collaboration among biological, chemical, computational, physical, health, and social scientists, mathematicians, and engineers.
The Ecological Sciences and Engineering (ESE) Program provides students with an interdisciplinary/interdepartmental educational experience that integrates the science and engineering concepts needed to address grand challenges in environmental sciences.
