Liz Berdugo, PE
This is a two-hour course intended to educate engineers about an aspect of the environment that involves them on a daily basis and get them excited about their own potential to participate in environmental improvement. The first part of the course explains health and environmental problems such as air toxics, urban smog, and global climate change that are created in part by vehicle emissions. The second part of the course shows how engineers can serve as leaders in their workplaces and communities by taking steps to help reduce these problems. The steps discussed include properly maintaining a vehicle, saving gas and increasing mileage efficiency, considering a retrofit to a vehicle’s air conditioner, and choosing the right vehicle for individual needs.
This course includes a multiple choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
