ECL-USA appreciates the good work being done by other organizations that we have collaborated with to advance the future of engineering. See below for three recent examples.
Engineering for One Planet
The Engineering for One Planet (EOP) Initiative has launched a new website as a resource for the global engineering education community. Mobilized by The Lemelson Foundation and VentureWell in collaboration with hundreds of stakeholders, EOP seeks to establish environmental sustainability as a core tenet of engineering education. The site provides a curricular framework and other toolkits for educators, and additional resources, information and events for the community. The curricular framework is currently being piloted by five universities: ASU’s Polytechnic School, Oregon State University College of Engineering, UCF College of Engineering & Computer Science, University of Maryland – A. James Clark School of Engineering, and Villanova University College of Engineering. Visit the site for more resources and information, and to sign up for updates: http://bit.ly/3qmKsHc
