Listen to the podcast (11 min 30 seconds)
Welcome to the Badger Engineering Perspective, where we explore some of
the ways new developments in engineering can improve our work, play, and
everyday lives. This podcast is a product of the College of Engineering
at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
In this episode, we talk with Geological Engineering and Civil and Environmental Engineering Professor and Chair Craig Benson, who is director of sustainability research and education for the new UW-Madison Office of Sustainability. Benson discusses how the office will encourage research of responsible uses for resources; give students the tools to consider sustainability, regardless of their academic discipline; and strengthen campus ties to the rest of the state.
