Technology, Society and the Enivornment

Although I was nervous this morning, I survived my first day of class … new program, new building and an old friend.

My first class, titled above, is taught by Professor W.H. Vanderburg. His passion’s lie in the study of technology, society, biosphere interactions and its application to the development of preventive approaches for the engineering, management and regulation of modern technology.

The theme that echoed through the introduction of this course was

Although we may all be experts in one area only collectively can we solve the problem of sustainability

Professor Vanderburg highlighted that there are always consequences to our actions (i.e. planing a new subdivision creates congestion, drainage issues, etc) and that if we employ experts in those fields (i.e individuals who specialize in public transportation, waste-water management, renewable fuels, etc) than we can find a sustainable long-term solution to building new subdvisions.
