- How does an inter-disciplinary work?
Environment science in recent years is conceived mainly to
solve the problems we caused in our own environment. In this sense we
were not driven in the first line to ponder a philosophical
relationship between human beings and their environment in modern
environmental science, unless such a consideration becomes necessary
to solve the environment problems. Universities and research
organizations took different measures to meet the urgent needs to
remedy the altered environment. ETH Zurich in Switzerland decided to
found a new faculty to establish the high education and research works
on environment in 1987. Since then we have sent annually about 120
graduates to our society and to graduate schools. The environment
specific methods of education were also developed. A number of
environment related issues were also tackled in a scientific manner.
In this course we learned that the interdisciplinary approach is more
effective to solve many issued arising in our environment.
Interdisciplinary approach is a legitimate research method in
environment science, very much like in medicine. Experiences gathered
during the first 20 years at ETH will be presented.
