Today's lecture will address the question: Do today’s engineering graduates and engineers have the skills and tools to address the global problems that our planet and humans are facing today, or will be facing within the next 20 years?
This 2015 Michigan Meeting is a culmination of an 18 month dialogue on an issue of interdisciplinary and global importance: the engagement of the academy in creating informed decision-making with the public and political realms.
Emerging technologies and a new outlook on our world can help us be more energy efficient than ever before and expand the use of clean energy. In this age of extreme weather, dramatically fluctuating fuel prices, and unpredictable power outages, the question is: how resilient are you? Drawing on his expertise in energy efficiency and clean energy, Sean Reed will help attendees understand our rapidly changing world and how to make smart decisions about energy – in their business and family life.
Please join us for a very special lecture about what it takes to pass historic air quality legislation. Margo Oge served at the US Environmental Protection Agency for 32 years, the last 18 of which she directed the Office of Transportation Air Quality. Ms. Oge led the Obama Administration’s landmark 2012 Clean Air Act deal with automakers, which will double the fuel efficiency of automakers’ fleets to 54.5 mpg and cut greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2025. In Driving the Future: Combating Climate Change with Cleaner, Smarter Cars Margo Oge will provide the ultimate insider’s account of the science, politics, policy, legal battles and, most importantly, the people who made this regulation possible. She then describes transition technologies and the ultimate future that will enable a global market for super-efficient, zero carbon-emitting vehicles and other sustainable personal mobility options.
The Michigan EIBC 3rd Annual Member Meeting will focus on Michigan-based advanced energy. Topics include a discussion with Michigan legislative leaders, a "fireside chat" focused on what the proposed Clean Power Plan means for Michigan, and six breakout panels.
Please join the Department of Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Sciences in welcoming Paul J. Turinsky, Professor of Nuclear Engineering at North Carolina State University and Chief Scientist of the Consortium for Advanced Simulation of LWRs (CASL) for the fourth annual Richard K. Osborn Lecture.
The University of Michigan STTP and CLOSUP Programs invite you to: The Transportation Transformation and its Policy Implications. What’s ahead at UM, in Ann Arbor, in the US? Will future vehicles be public or private? What policy challenges arise from these transformations?
The Department of Environmental and Water Resources Engineering welcomes Bruce Logan from Penn State University, Evan Pugh Professor, Stan & Flora Kappe Professor of Environmental Engineering, and Director of the Engineering Energy & Environmental Institute.
The Mechanical Engineering Seminar series welcomes Gary Rubloff, Professor of Materials Science at the University of Maryland, founding Director of the University of Maryland NanoCenter, and Director of the DOE Nanostructures for Electrical Energy Storage Frontier Research Center.
