TECHNICAL-SCIENTIFIC AND SOCIO-ECONOMIC ANALYSIS OF: SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT ENGINEERING (SDE) AND ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING (EE) USING A CROSS-DISCIPLINARY (CD) INTEGRATED SYSTEM APPROACH (ISA)Pages: 31-50
Authors: Said S.E.H.Elnashaie
This paper addresses the different CD aspects of SDE and EE using the most effective methods based on System Theory (ST). The paper addresses the technical, social and educational aspects of these CD systems. The paper has Chemical and Biological Engineering (CBE) as the heart of analysis and discussion. The development of societies, depletion of classical energy sources, global warming, etc., dictates a CD approach to deal with modern challenges. This CD approach should extend the boundaries of different scientific and engineering disciplines to reach all other disciplines including, economics, politics and other social sciences. It is about time for engineers, scientists, medical doctors, economists, politicians, military officers and specialists, etc. to join arms in CD projects to achieve sustainability for a better , stable, peaceful , non-sectarian, prospers and more just societies. This article aims to introduce common basis for these disciplines to work together toward these honorable aims.
