Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Instructional Guide
This Instructional Guide has been developed to provide instructors using the Environmental Impact Assessment Course Module with an understanding of the design of the Module so that they can customise the its material and assessment to the needs of their learners and location.
Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA)
Welcome to the course module on strategic environmental assessment (SEA) - a learning resource that explains SEA theory, practice and methodology. The course covers SEA principles; SEA status worldwide; links between SEA, environmental impact assessment, and strategic decision-making; and a wide range of SEA tools and techniques, and their advantages and disadvantages in various settings. The course is divided into: Background, Strategic actions, SEA Process, Baseline Assessment, Implementation,
Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) Instructional Guide
This instructional guide explains the structure of the Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) course and expected learning outcomes, suggests some course assignments, and suggests some guidance for course participants when carrying out the assignments.
Applied Civil Engineering
A fandango of heavy equipment coordinated by a civil engineer, in order to surgically dig a trench and replace aging water pipes. Parallel lInes were drawn and cut in the road. Asphalt is peeled away in strips. Dirt is transferred. They dig dig dig dig dig dig dig; that's what they like to do. Framingham, 2010.
Art in Engineering - Moving Art
Students learn how forces are used in the creation of art. They come to understand that it is not just bridge and airplane designers who are concerned about how forces interact with objects, but artists as well. As “paper engineers,” students create their own mobiles and pop-up books, and identify and use the forces (air currents, gravity, hand movement) acting upon them.

Environmental Philosophy, Fall 2007
The aim of this course is to enable participants to bring together materials from various disciplines bearing on our current environmental crisis, and from this integrated perspective to evaluate possible ways in which the crisis might be resolved. Disciplines to be consulted include ecology, thermodynamics, economics, value theory, and environmental history, among others. This project will rely on the integrative skills of philosophy to discern how materials from these disparate sources fit tog

AP Environmental Science
This course is assembled from UC-approved college preparatory courses and is designed to acquaint students with the physical, ecological, social, and political principles of environmental science. The scientific method is used to analyze and understand the inter-relationships between humans and the natural environment. The course shows how ecological realities and the material desires of humans often clash, leading to environmental degradation and pollution. The course covers: Earth's Systems, H
Going-to-the-Sun Road: A Model of Landscape Engineering
This site describes the first highway by which visitors could see the lakes, glaciers, alpine peaks, and meadows of Glacier National Park. Work on the 50-mile route, which connected the east and west sides of the park and crossed the Continental Divide at Logan Pass, began in 1921. The high technical ...
