Project Title: ONLINE COURSES ON BIORENEWABLE RESOURCES & ENGINEERING SUSTAINABILITY
PI: Dr. John Schluo (Kansas State University, Chemical Engineering)
Start Date: 7/1/2009 End Date: 6/30/2011
The two courses to be developed will directly impact the Biobased Products and Bioenergy graduate certificate program at Kansas State University. The core course will provide a coordinated interdisciplinary overview of the field. The course on engineering sustainability will quantitatively address the sustainability issues necessary for informed engineering decisions.
These courses and the graduate certificate program as a whole will have significant value to industrial practitioners. Online delivery will be particularly valuable for those individuals who are not located near a college or university.
