integrating into classes

Sign up for Jeremy Faludi’s webinar, Teaching Green: Integrating Sustainability into Your Curriculum, on Thursday, October 25 from 1:00 PM EST to 2:00 PM EST. Faludi will highlight ways to weave sustainability into existing courses on engineering and physics, industrial and product design, and business. 

For educators looking to incorporate sustainable innovation curriculum into existing classes, here are some suggestions for:

  • engineering / physics classes
  • design classes
  • business classes 

 

Mechanical Engineering and Physics

The Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) requires engineering programs to include environmental and social sustainability as real-world design constraints in curriculum.
