Lamar University, Beaumont, TX: Fall 2019 EWN course

Course Description:

Introduce and broaden students' horizons to the overall concept of Engineering With Nature (EWN) as being developed and implemented by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). Traditional engineering versus EWN. What is EWN? Principles, Practices, and Examples.

EWN represents an approach to developing and operating a project, where a project could take the form of a wide range of activities supporting water resources development. For example, developing new flood risk management infrastructure, a dredging project, or an ecosystem restoration project. The USACE defines EWN as the intentional alignment of natural and engineering processes to efficiently and sustainably deliver economic, environmental and social benefits through collaboration.
