Poster Presentations From SSES Research Forum Now Available Online

April 21, 2009
Posted in:
Engineering researchers with a focus on sustainable engineered systems got a glimpse of the shape of things to come at a sustainability research forum organized by the College of Engineering on April 3.

More than 30 poster presentations with a theme of sustainability were on display, and a talk was given by Michael Reischman, deputy assistant director at the National Science Foundation’s Directorate for Engineering.

Reischman's talk -- Priorities and Opportunities for Research at NSF -- centered on sustainability topics within the engineering grand challenges put forward by the National Academy of Engineering, and how they meshed with the research areas covered by the proposed School of Sustainable Engineered Systems.

Of the 30-plus posters presented at the research forum, most have been made available in PDF format [7.3 MB] by Jo Leeming in the Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering.
