Environmental Engineers come to SMU in Taos

Engineering and Design for the Developing World taught by Nathan Huntoon and Environmental Field Methods taught by Andrew Quicksall were new classes in the August term never before taught at SMU in Taos. The design class “examined engineering design in the absence of key resources, including construction material, water and electricity. The course will focus on the development of shelter and sanitation in an efficient manner. Understanding the total energy cycle will be emphasized, as well as multiple alternative energy solutions.” The Field Methods class covered topics related to environmentally relevant field work in the developing world and tackled such projects as building a latrine.
