Opportunities in Environmental Engineering at UCSD

We would like to draw your attention to a unique opportunity for your
students to jump on the environmental sustainability train, which is moving
ahead at full steam. The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
has created the Environmental Engineering major a few years ago in an effort
to merge quantitative engineering skills with sensitivity to environmental
issues. This website gives an overview of the program and ongoing research:

Our enrollment has more than doubled each of the past 2 years and we would
like to continue to grow this major. We know that students with an interest
in environmental issues are often the best students in your class. We are
confident that we can provide them with a stimulating and competitive
environment to learn the fundamentals and engineering principals required
for a successful career in Clean Tech. Please do not hesitate to contact me or
have your students call/email me directly. The application period for Fall
2009 will be in November 2008. There are some special opportunities for you
to visit the campus coming up during Earthweek:
