Industrial Ecology Capstone

Credits: 3

Spring 2020: Time and location TBA

The industrial ecology specialization examines the relationships among production, consumption, sustainability, design, and industrial ecology in diverse settings, from products to firms to cities to international trade flows. This capstone course assigns student teams to work with sponsor companies to apply quantitative methods to practical problems facing the organization. In addition, students working independently join the class to learn more about project preparation and to share insights with other students interested in industrial ecology insights and applications.
