As a student in Dr. Wessling’s class, students were tasked with recommendations on how the farmer could combine aquaculture with hydroponics to optimize a sustainable food production system for the farm. "This was how engineering really came to life for me… when I saw how we could directly impact someone."


Researching sustainability issues, developing new technologies, and refining strategies, are ways that UAH is able to help provide a better understanding of sustainability challenges and develop approaches to addressing those challenges.
