Aquatic and environmental engineering - Engineering - 0 views

  •  
    "Aquatic and environmental engineering; an engineering topic, used sometimes as a synonym for Civil engineering. It is the application of science and engineering principles to improving the environment (air, water, and/or land resources), to provide healthful water, air and land for human habitation and for other organisms, and to investigate the possibilities for remediation of polluted sites. Negative environmental effects can be decreased and controlled through public education, conservation, regulations, and the application of good engineering practices. "

Environmental engineering - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - 0 views

  •  
    "Environmental engineering is the integration of science and engineering principles to improve the natural environment (air, water, and/or land resources), to provide healthy water, air, and land for human habitation (house or home) and for other organisms, and to remediate pollution sites. Further more it is concerned with finding plausible solutions in the field of public health, such arthropod-borne diseases, implementing law which promote adequate sanitation in urban, rural and recreational areas. It involves waste water management and air pollution control, recycling, waste disposal, radiation protection, industrial hygiene, environmental sustainability, and public health issues as well as a knowledge of environmental engineering law. It also includes studies on the environmental impact of proposed construction projects."

    "I originally stumbled into the environmental engineering major because I could write a good college essay about it (not kidding). Once I actually began researching the major, I decided it was for me. Environmental engineering is a relatively new field that is guaranteed to grow in the future because of an increased demand to go green (aka job openings). I have always loved the outdoors and want to have a job where I can help people and not be stuck behind a desk, which I believe I can find in the environmental engineering field."

Engineering the Earth: Exploring Wind Energy - 0 views

  •  
    Wind is one important source of alternative energy. In this activity, kids create their own wind turbine and attach it to a Hot Wheels Car. Then they can use a fan to power the turbines so their cars can move! Wind is a great alternate to fuel since fuel pollutes the air and is nonrenewable. Because wind is a renewable energy source, we will never run out! However, as the girls at Girlstart discovered from testing their own cars, there are some cons to powering a car with wind.
