 turbine wind millMarquette's ECE, Civil and Law professors offer a  collaborative course on  renewable energy and sustainability 

Preparing our engineers and future thought leaders to tackle the multifaceted challenges in renewable energy and sustainability requires us to think across disciplines. To meet this need, Marquette Professors EL-Refaie (ECE), Arthur J. Harrington (Law), and Noelle Brigham (Civil Engineering) have collaboratively developed a unique course. The multi-disciplinary course, titled “Renewable Energy: Policy, Technology and Sustainability,” focuses on the legal policy, technical framework, and sustainability for renewable energy projects development with special focus on Wisconsin. The course covers the following legal policy topics:  corporate structuring, financing, taxation, permitting and strategies to support and oppose such projects. The course will provide a general overview of technical considerations for emerging renewable technologies in Wisconsin such as biomass, waste to energy, geothermal, solar and wind projects.

In addition, sustainable development aspects of renewable energy projects are introduced to identify impacts to the triple bottom line (social, environmental, and financial).  This course is cross listed in the Law and Engineering College to create a diverse classroom and foster a collaborative approach to developing +renewable energy projects, consistent with legal and technical partnerships that occur in practice.  Currently, students from both schools are taking the course. On the engineering side, both graduate and undergraduate students from ECE, mechanical, civil and biomedical are taking the course further highlighting the unique and diverse nature of the course.
