Environmental Engineering, Sustainability, and Science (EESS)

Sustainability addresses the ability of societies to maintain and improve quality of life while preserving both the quality and availability of its natural resources. As the world’s population increases, engineers face ever-evolving challenges with regard to issues of sustainability and the health of our natural environment. The EESS research group seeks to meet the growing challenges of environmental stewardship and sustainability, and focuses on:

  • air and water quality engineering, science, and modeling
  • environmental nanotechnology
  • environment-energy studies (including: bioenergy, carbon capture and sequestration, and shale gas)
  • environmental sensing
  • green design and construction
  • industrial ecology
  • life cycle assessment
  • remediation risk assessment
  • sustainable engineering
  • climate change
