This project supports the development of the new course “From 51 Billion to Zero: Challenges and Opportunities in Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions” to be taught in its initial offering as EECS 298-051 in Fall 2023. The goal of this course is two-fold. First, the understanding of how human activities, from electricity generation to transportation, construction, agriculture, and heating/cooling, contribute to the release of greenhouse gases (GHG) in the Earth’s atmosphere. Second, the study of current and prospective engineering solutions for reducing and potentially eliminating GHG emissions. This course is open to all engineering undergraduate students and it will be offered regularly afterwards. The lectures will be presented by the instructor and by domain experts at UM; some of the invited lectures will be live while others will be in the form of pre-recorded interviews. Each lecture will include an active learning exercise.
