The IUPUI School of Engineering and Technology is offering a 3 credit hour course titled GO GREEN, “Green Organizations: Global Responsibility for Economic and Environmental Necessity" over the summer. A portion of this three credit hour course will be taught at IUPUI prior to a one-week portion taught in Marseille, France. The class will meet at IUPUI in July for a final discussion and closing. This course is open to all IUPUI students. This interdisciplinary course emphasizes sustainability, globalization and French culture. In this context, sustainability refers to design, engineering, manufacturing, technology, and leadership processes implemented and maintained in industry and business for the purpose of being environmentally responsible, energy-efficient, cost-effective, and socially responsible. Students will visit industries, municipalities and universities such as EDF Hydroelectric Power Station in Serre-Ponçon (largest Dam in Europe), Frioul Island (Organic Fish Farm), Solar Farm in Vinon-sur-Verdon, Vasarely Foundation in Aix-en-Provence, Polytech Marseille - Aix-Marseille Universite, etc. to see various innovative methods of technology, manufacturing, and engineering, as well as embedded sustainable practices.
