Ecological Design


Ecological Design is the process of integrating humans with the rest of nature in order to create a sustainable and desirable future. Ecological Design employs transdisciplinary integration, creative synthesis, and true participatory problem-solving to understand and resolve increasingly complex issues. The emphasis of the Certificate of Graduate Study in Ecological Design is on problem-based learning in ecology, engineering, natural resources, and community development. The approach is to develop applied and interdisciplinary solutions which integrate the ecological, social, economic, and built systems.
