Environment Courses by Department

Like so many of the tough problems tackled by MIT, solutions to the world's increasingly urgent environmental challenges will come from interdisciplinary perspectives.

Tide pools.

From the small, tangible scale on campus (such as campus-wide recycling and composting scraps from the preparation of food in campus cafeterias) to the broad, technology-driven solutions for the world (researching ways to construct cleaner coal-fired power plants and bringing "smart bikes" to Denmark), the MIT community is working to solve the myriad challenges facing the environment today.
