Center for Sustainable Engineering Opens

A research team led by Carnegie Mellon University, the University of Texas at Austin, and Arizona State University has established the Center for Sustainable Engineering, supported by $1.7 million from the National Science Foundation and $350,000 from the Environmental Protection Agency. “We want this new Center to help the nation’s 1,500 engineering programs realize that being green may not be easy, but it is vitally important,” says Cliff Davidson, civil and environmental engineering professor at Carnegie Mellon. The Center’s first workshops are scheduled for July 2006 at Carnegie Mellon. For more information, visit
