Materials, Resources, and Sustainability Seminar
In Spring 2024, Dr. Peter Mullner (MSE) and Dr. Stephen Crowley (Philosophy) are co-hosting a seminar series as part of their special topics course. Seminars are available to the public via Zoom on Tuesdays at 3:00 pm.
These seminars are themed around the importance of rare materials in modern technology such as the cell phone along with the scarcity of usable sources of these resources (e.g. ore deposits) create geopolitical instability, supply chain failure, environmental challenges – and opportunities to engage in meaningful careers. Seminars will feature government, industry, and academic speakers.
