This page will use the University of British Columbia Farm as a case study to demonstrate sustainable design approaches, measures, and practices. The building industry currently contributes about 40% of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere globally. The ecosystem approach to sustainable design will be explored, using the Farm as the ecosystem in question.

This website was born to provide a platform for educators to publish their open educational resources to help our students and all engineering students around the world in their pursuit of knowledge. The website is arranged in books. Each book presents a set of open educational resources designed for a particular engineering course. The resources could include text, videos, interactive examples, or downloadable content such as code snippets.
