    • Course Description:
    • ( Exchange Programme )
    • This course provides a comprehensive presentation of theories, principles of ecological engineering and the advanced biological, chemical, and physical conditions that determine the design of biological systems. Emphasis will be on 1) stream and wetland ecosystem restoration and 2) natural treatment systems and living technologies for groundwater, stormwater, and wastewater.
    • Course Syllabus:
    • After completing the course, students should:
      1.Understand the principles of ecological engineering and how they apply to ecosystem restoration.
      2.Become familiar with biological, chemical, and physical processes occurring in natural ecosystems that can help design engineered ecological systems for restoration and water quality improvement
      3.Become familiar with implementation techniques to a.) design stream and wetland restoration projects and b) develop natural treatment systems for groundwater, stormwater, and wastewater.

    • Profile
    • Dr. Huang’s research focus is agricultural and municipal waste treatment, ecological design and engineering for wetland and river ecosystem restoration. With his laboratory group in the Ecological Design and Engineering Laboratory, his current research projects include designs for a variety of constructed wetlands for wastewater treatment in China, phytoremediation of heavy metal contaminated water, using algae and wetland plants, and investigation of eco-toxicity of heavy metals to aquatic life. He currently teaches classes at the Shanghai Jiao Tong University in Introduction to Ecology, Wetland Ecology, Ecological Design and Engineering, and Ecological Engineering for wastewater treatment.
