ISE - Institute for Sustainable Engineering  

Current Events

The launching of the Institute for Sustainable Engineering is an epoch-making event in the history of engineering, research and education in the entire world.

It represents a significant shift in awareness of what is possible to accomplish by engineers, scientists and researchers anywhere.

Founded with a private donation to Dr. Tony Pereira, UCLA ME PhD.

We aim to become a powerful world force for change by establishing working partnerships with entities public and private from all around the planet.

The time is now.

DATE: Thursday, 31 January 2008

PLACE: 38-138 Engineering IV
TIME: 10:00 – 12:00 P.M., 1:30 – 6:00 P.M.

A full day 'Sustainability Teach-In' will be conducted in the Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering Dept. as part of the 'Focus the Nation' national day of global warming awareness. Tony Pereira, MAE PhD Candidate, invited Distinguished Prof. Goodstein about one year earlier to come to UCLA to do a presentation on global warming and also first announce the nationwide 'Focus the Nation' initiative. Today, about 1,500 universities have enrolled and are conducting similar activities. Is global warming the only issue? Clearly not. There are multiple concerns requiring immediate attention by everyone everywhere and especially by engineers such as air, water and soil pollution, acid rain, energy production, food & pesticide use, oceans, coral reefs, species extinctions, and how all these closely interrelate in the web of life. As a broad & complex subject as it is, a holistic view of sustainability will be presented, the critical aspects of mass and energy balance, the current problems and the solutions involved. A 'teach-in' day conducted by engineers with a solid understanding of sustainability issues and in a classroom setting is far more effective than a general discussion or roundtable thus providing a much better focus and wider scope, and will be able to endow the audience with an indelible grasp of what is necessary to accomplish to realize the move towards a sustainable society. We will provide an in-depth review of the science of sustainability and cover the most effective methods required to prepare the leaders of tomorrow who will make the transition to a sustainable world. We are looking forward to your participation this Thursday, and cordially invite your near-future collaboration in concrete engineering projects closely related to engineering sustainability.
