  • 2. Michael Scott Mater Foundation 2009 649 Harrison Drive NW Concord, NC. 28027 1-800-322-6763 ANNEX B: IPOSE—IRAQ Curriculum Friday - July 30: Interpreters arrive to meet with OSU staff to review curriculum to be covered during two-week seminar. Note: all curriculum notes, power point slides, etc. to be submitted at least a month in advance to MSMF to ensure adequate time for translation of materials. Friday will serve as final brush-up and to answer any last minute questions Saturday - Aug 1: Participants arrive. Sunday – Aug 2: Rest day. Private dinner with OSU engineering faculty and International Program officials Monday – Aug 3: Setting the stage. Opening ceremony at OSU; seminar begins. Corvallis community reception to officially welcome participants that evening (Top of the Renaissance) Curriculum Focus: This day will focus on providing guest faculty with overviews of student skill sets required in engineering and construction projects in the US and elsewhere where sustainability is a lead deliverable. Guest faculty will gain a clear understanding of the growing requirements for engineering students to be trained in infrastructure and building designs that reduce environmental impact and `carbon footprint, and increase building/structure performance and life cycle. Guest faculty will learn about university accreditation requirements in engineering curriculum in the US, and the growing mandate for coursework in sustainable engineering and design. Technical Overview: OSU faculty Environmental focus (the who, what, where, when, why, of environmental focus in US and impacts on engineering education based on these growing environmental forces) Market forces: growth of green building and building materials certifications (US Green Building Council and LEED, NAHB, FSC/PEFC/SFI, Energy Star, etc.), growth in requirements for net-zero building construction, smart grid development, federal mandates for construction requirements in the public building sector, etc. Policy directions and mandates: Safety/liability requirements; renewable energy / renewable fuel state and Congressional mandates; life cycle analysis based on carbon footprint reduction (materials development and facility/infrastructure construction), biological treatment of water and waste water; innovative solid waste handling and materials recycling; implications on changes in university engineering curriculums in US based on these policy mandates; and potential applications in Iraqi engineering curriculums.
