Armed with a lifetime of engineering, military service and business experience, Emeritus Professor of Industrial and Systems Engineering Charles Overby will offer his reflections on the imperatives of green technology and engineering in a special lecture scheduled for Thu., March 21, at 12 p.m. in Stocker Center Room 103.
Overby, born in rural Montana, served as an Air Force pilot in World War II and Korea. In his postgraduate years after spending his early career as a design engineer, he began his involvement in peace and social justice issues and developed the worldview that engineering and design should address social and environmental impacts in addition to their practical applications.
Dubbed “Green Technology by Design,” his perspective about the connections between engineering, technology, public policy will be the focus of his lecture. He will also share how green engineering and technology can be used to help promote peace, prevent “resource wars” and combat global warming.
The lecture is free and open to the public.
