Green Engineering Minor – Undergraduate
Objectives
Provide a holistic, systems perspective to the impact of human activity on the environment, including the role of engineering. Educate students in the concepts of sustainable development and industrial ecology. Provide insight into sustainability tools and metrics such as life cycle analysis and ecological footprint. Show how engineering decisions, particular with regard to design, can support sustainability goals. Develop awareness of the ethical, economic, social and political dimensions that influence sustainability.
Content
The Green Engineering Minor consists of six courses, three of which are required as core. These core courses comprise a two-course technical foundation (Sustainable Engineering and Sustainable Energy) plus one contextual course (Environmental Policy: Economic & Philosophical Issues). This is followed by two technical electives which can also provide a sustainable engineering focus area. An elective contextual course completes the Minor.

Certificate in Sustainable Engineering - graduate
Objectives
Provide a holistic, systems perspective to the impact of human activity on the environment, including the role of engineering. Educate students in the concepts of sustainable development and industrial ecology. Provide insight into sustainability tools and metrics such as life cycle analysis and ecological footprint. Show how engineering decisions, particular with regard to design, can support sustainability goals. Develop awareness of the ethical, economic, social and political dimensions that influence sustainability. The Certificate is an interdisciplinary program which can also provide a foundation for continued study to a Masters degree in one of several programs/tracks, including those existing and pending in Infrastructure Systems, Mechanical Engineering, Sustainable Energy Systems and in Technology, Policy & Ethics
Content
The Sustainable Engineering Graduate Certificate consists of five courses. These comprise: a core technical foundation course, two technical electives that can be chosen to provide a focus area, a systems engineering elective and a policy elective.
