Green Engineering, Science, & Technology
The Engineering, Science, & Technology pathway is in the process of revising its program of study to Green Engineering, Science, & Technology. Green Engineering transforms existing engineering disciplines and practices to those that promote sustainability. Green Engineering incorporates development and implementation of technologically and economically viable products, processes, and systems that promote human welfare while protecting human health and elevating the protection of the biosphere as a criterion in engineering solutions. Within the pathway, students will explore topics on improving energy conservation, improved water quality and efficiency, reduced waste production and improved recycling programs, as well as, learn about key relationships between dynamic environmental, energy, and human systems.The first course in the sequence, Foundations of Engineering and Technology, is the introductory course for all Georgia Engineering and Technology Education pathways. This course provides students with opportunities to develop fundamental technological literacy as they learn about the history, systems, and processes of invention and innovation.
The third course, Engineering Applications, provide students with opportunities to apply engineering design as they develop a solution for a technological problem. Students use applications of mathematics and science to predict the success of an engineered solution and complete hands-on activities with tools, materials, and processes as they develop a working drawings and prototypes. In the senior year, students experience an Internship/Independent Research to deepen their understanding and application of Green Engineering.Contact Tia Martin at email@example.com for additional information regarding the Green Engineering pathway.
