Benchmarking the Integration of Sustainability into Engineering Curricula at U.S. Institutions of Higher Education: The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the auspices of the National Center for Environmental Research (NCER) within the Office of Research and Development (ORD) announces a competition for benchmarking the integration of sustainability concepts into engineering curriculum at institutions of higher education in the United States. Providing fundamental engineering education with an awareness of the relationship of engineering to the cornerstones of sustainability, economy, society, and the environment, will build capacity for a future workforce that is prepared to address the technical challenges to simultaneously promote prosperity, benefit people, and protect the planet. The Brundtland Commission has defined sustainability as "meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs" [1]. EPA is particularly interested in sustainability as it relates to human health and the environment.
