Graduate students in the Environmental Management Certificate program from across the University collaborate to tackle real-world problems with profound policy, scientific and business ramifications. Students engage in environmental challenges-including energy, climate change, food systems, depletion of natural resources and pollution-and learn to organize collaborative teams to complete a client-based project. Addressing these challenges requires an understanding of diverse disciplines. The program spans traditional academic boundaries, allowing students to integrate broad perspectives, knowledge, skills and interconnections. Our goal is for students to achieve a coherent view of environmental issues through an interdisciplinary focus on the complex relationships among science, management and policy. Applications are accepted twice each year, usually the first Monday in February and first Monday in May.
The Environmental Management Graduate Certificate program offers students access to the University of Washington's world-class faculty and resources across multiple colleges and schools, including the Evans School of Public Affairs, Foster School of Business, the College of Engineering, and the College of the Environment.
The EM Certificate program offers students:
A real-world consulting experience
A solution-based approach to environmental issues
Interdisciplinary problem-solving practice
Skills development in project management, problem solving, communications, and team-building
Opportunities to develop relationships across an network of graduate students, UW faculty, and potential employers
Eligibility Students must be matriculated graduate or professional students to be eligible to apply to the Environmental Management Certificate program.

The EE Graduation Celebration is moving to Hec Edmundson Pavilion. This will cure our seating issues. The date for event will be Wednesday, June 8th. The precise start time remains to be determined but it will be an evening event (after 6 p.m.)
UW's Academic Support Programs is offering a service-learning seminar titled “EDUC 401: Higher Education Tutoring and Mentorship”
in WinterQuarter 2016. This weekly seminar introduces
juniors and seniors to tutoring, mentoring, and teaching methodologies.
Students apply what they learn in class through tutoring and mentoring
new transfer, freshman, and sophomore students who
are transitioning socially, culturally, and academically to the UW.
This is a great opportunity for seasoned students to give back to the UW
by sharing their knowledge and experience.
·Seminar meets on Mondays from
3:30-4:50 PM or from 6:00-7:20 PM
·Tutoring takes place on campus
2 credits for working with one student, or 3 credits for working with two students
·A letter of recommendation will be available upon request after completion of the seminar
scholarships are awarded to students who demonstrate professionalism
and a passion for their future careers. This means that we evaluate
applicants' profiles with the eye of a hiring manager.

like to help build and test a high speed, large format 3D printer that
has a 1m x 1m x 1.5m build volume and earn class credit for it through
an ME 499 class?
Any member or
interested student may join this class upon instructor approval.
Students do not have to be involved at all with the club currently. We
are looking for driven self-motivated students who can be reliable
workers while also maintaining a busy academic schedule.
classes meeting time is yet to be determined, but it will be once a
week to give assignments to team members who will then complete tasks on
their own time with supervision from team leads.
credits can be assigned for the course and will vary according to
students personal need. The amount of time each student should be
expected to give for work will be three hours per credit per week. The

University has the need for a high speed large-format 3D printer to aid in the
designing, building, and prototyping for various students, clubs, faculty
members, classes, and research projects.
Approach to Class
will be run as if the students are a manufacturing team in an industry setting
fabricating, assembling, testing, and proving the concept of a large-format 3D
printer called Big Blue, designed by members of WOOF3D (On Campus 3D Printer
Club).The successful proof of concept
of this printer could result in an ME 495 capstone class.

safety equipment at all times.
members of the Big Blue design team to understand the vision, goals,
priorities, and requirements for proving the design concept of Big Blue.The team will then prove or disprove the
design concept of Big Blue through the fabrication, assembly, and testing of
Big Blue’s XY axis gantry movement, electronics, extrusion system, and Z axis
movement if time allows.
manufacturing plan created by the WOOF3D design team to build Big Blue.Project leads will follow this manufacturing
plan and will be selected based on experience and knowledge of the project.
Leadership positions on the team will be Management Lead, Fabrication Lead,
Electronics Lead, Assembly and Testing Lead, and Documentation Lead.Additional members of the team will be placed
on teams and work with and under the instruction of project leads on a specific
part of the project and will be placed with each lead based on experience,
prior knowledge and desire to work on specific parts of the project of the
building, testing, and interfacing of Big Blue and any problems and changes of
design throughout the course of the class.
Solidworks models, drawings, part descriptions, manufacturer instructions,
fabrication equipment, and prior research on the implementation of electronics
and mechanical devices in a 3D printer to create Big Blue.Campus resources such as shops, maker spaces,
and the WOOF3D room will be used to help fabricate and assemble all parts of
to individually produce a written summary of the work and additional research
or documentation done while Big Blue is being assembled resulting in
collaborative weekly reports.A final
will be required and follow the ME 495: “Final Report Guidelines” provided in
class.The final report should be pulled
and developed from the collaborative weekly reports of the team.
document and compare the current capabilities of large-format 3D printing on
the market with the final documented specs of Big Blue’s printing
capabilities.Criteria for how well the
printer functions will be developed to meet the requirements of the Big Blue
will include a description of the current design of Big Blue and its printing
capabilities. A user manual will also be included in the final report, which
would allow users unfamiliar with 3D printing to use the printer.Lastly, further recommendations for future
research required to enable the large-format printer to meet its requirements
for a full-scale design and manufacturing of a final production-ready
large-format printer and that could not be met during the course of the class.

manufacturing team will meet at least once a week for a period of 1 hour at a
scheduled time to discuss the planning, and project assignments.The in-class schedule is still being
finalized but most likely be Tuesday or Thursday late- afternoon. .The team will meet outside of this regularly
scheduled meeting in order to complete assigned tasks and phases of the
project.This time will be mainly considered
lab time where the team will split into smaller teams to complete their
assigned tasks for project phases. Meetings will be held in the MEB generally
or in an alternative location depending on the purpose of the meeting.The general time contribution estimated per
week per student will be 3 hours per credit.
ME 499 is a variable credit class.The class is designed to be 3 credits.Each student may choose between 2 to 5
credits (more credits will require a larger time commitment as noted
above).The student may also take the
class pass/fail if approved by the department.
