FT: Field Experience in Industrial Operations

Credits: 1
Fall 2017: Time and location TBA


A series of one-day field trips designed to expose students to the various aspects of industrial ecology. In previous years, students have visited waste management facilities, utility providers, product manufacturers, clean tech start-ups, and green consultancies in New England and the surrounding regions. The field trips allow students to gain a better understanding of the concepts and themes of industrial ecology (such as material and process flows, life-cycle assessment, and closed-loop systems) in the context of existing operations.
