Professor Richard LeSar – Article Featured in MRS Bulletin

Richard LeSar - Sustainability in Materials Science and EngineeringDr. Richard LeSar, MSE Professor, had an article featured in the April 2012 MRS Bulletin Special Issue. The article, entitled “Teaching Sustainable Development in Materials Science and Engineering,” discusses three materials sustainability programs designed by the authors that are being implemented in the U.S. and the different approaches each program takes. The hope for these programs is to introduce students to a variety of strategies they can apply and to educate them on applicable issues in materials science and engineering.
