EYE 112 Built Environment: Energy
A substantial component of the world we live in is the built environment – the world that people have invented, designed, built and used.

In recent times it has become recognized that human activities can seriously affect the natural environment. This course focuses on a particular part of the natural environment – energy. Students will learn what energy is, where various forms of energy come from and how they are transformed and used. Forms of energy studied include, for example, fossil, solar, wind, hydro, biomass, and nuclear. The course will address the social, economic, political and environmental issues related to the acquisition, processing and use of energy. Integral to the course are lectures, reading, writing, group activities, laboratory exercises and experiments, and a team project. Students should have very basic algebra skills.
