Santa Clara University's School of Engineering now offers a Master of Science in Sustainable Energy Graduate Program. Interested students must complete an undergraduate degree in a field of engineering or physics, and throughout their course of study, students will take foundational courses in sustainability as well as applied mathematics and engineering.
Integrating sustainability into a course can be as easy as incorporating a "sustainability moment." This resource provides twenty examples to help faculty relate sustainability to their course(s) in simple, concrete ways. From inviting a guest speaker to watching a short documentary about sustainability, it can be quite easy to relate coursework to sustainability issues on campus as well as in industry and the community.
The Penstemon Project is designed for faculty outside of the traditional environmentally-focused disciplines to find ways to incorporate sustainability into their curriculum – either as class content or in the way their class functions. Workshops were held in 2007 and 2009, and three will be hosted during the 2010-11 academic year.
