Sustainable Resources Engineering

Sustainable Resources Engineering (SRE) 

This division supports the development of highly specialized engineers and researchers across the resource recycling system as a whole, from development and production to recycling and waste disposal, in order to make effective use of finite natural resources and promote an environmentally friendly society. Students are expected to be able to think scientifically on a temporal scale covering everything from the origins of the earth and humans to the future, and on a spatial scale spanning the range from atomic/molecular to planetary considerations. Graduates will also have the capacity to address problems in light of related political and economic factors.
