Subject: Sustainable Systems MS at Rochester Institute for Sustainability
I thought some of your students might be interested in knowing that the Sustainable Systems M.S. program in RIT’s Golisano Institute for Sustainability (GIS) is currently accepting applications for Fall 2012 admission. This is an interdisciplinary program, meaning that students of many education backgrounds are admitted, and likewise, coursework and research draws on numerous disciplines within science, engineering, and liberal arts.
We are able to offer most students a partial tuition scholarship.
GIS’ multidisciplinary faculty have active research programs in diverse aspects of sustainable production systems, sustainable mobility, alternative energy systems, remanufacturing, recycling, and Eco-IT. Their research is supported by grants from such agencies as the National Science Foundation, Department of Energy, Department of Commerce, Environmental Protection Agency, and many major corporations. Our faculty and students conduct their research in state-of-the-art laboratories, which will expand into our new 83,000 sg. ft. research center (http://www.rit.edu/gis/academics/construction/ ) in October 2012.
We would very much appreciate your help in reaching students who may be interested in learning more about this program. Students may visit (http://www.rit.edu/gis/academics/ms-sustainability/ ) or contact me directly.
Thank you, and best regards,
