Friday, July 21 – Tuesday, July 25, 2017 at Shoals Marine Laboratory, Appledore Island
3-credit course via the University of New Hampshire (UNH). The course begins with exploration of the precept that we live in, and must design engineering works for, a world with a finite supply of natural resources and with limited life support capacity. Tools for sustainability engineering are the major focus of the course, which include life cycle, analysis and life cycle impact analysis, the metrics and mass and energy flow analyses used in the field of industrial ecology, and environmental management systems. CIE 851 is a hybrid course. It meets May 22 - July 20 online. It then meets Friday, July 21 through Tuesday, July 25, 2017 at Shoals Marine Laboratory, Appledore Island. There will be asynchronous chat rooms.
