Presentation Title Introducing Students to the Importance of Materials in Sustainability
Author(s) Jeffrey W. Fergus
On-Site Speaker (Planned) Jeffrey W. Fergus
Abstract Scope Materials science and engineering plays a critical role in the development of sustainable technologies. This presentation will describe three one-credit-hour courses that are designed to demonstrate this importance to students in engineering and non-engineering disciplines. One course focuses on technologies for energy conversion and storage and how materials are critical for enabling advancements in these technologies. The other two courses focus on how materials processing and selection affect the impact products have on the environmental. One of these two courses focuses on mineral resources and their processing while the other course focuses on life cycle assessment.
