Sustainable Systems career services information

"The familiarity I had with connections between environmental policy, the economy, and health and ecosystem impacts was one of my greatest strengths when applying for jobs. The Sustainable Systems courses I took made sure that I was comfortable "“ even if only at a basic level - with principles of economics and engineering and that I understood why environmental change required input from multiple fields. At my job now, I compile input from biologists, economists, engineers, and other stakeholders to inform my analyses of Federal environmental policies. I couldn"â„¢t do that without systems thinking and interdisciplinary education."

- Claire Santoro (SNRE MS Alum), currently working at Industrial Economics, Inc. as an Associate

"Of all the Environmental Science/Environmental Management programs I applied to, SNRE was my first choice, largely because of the Sustainable Systems track, which strongly emphasizes systems thinking and analysis. Plus, the University of Michigan has so many courses and research projects on systems (analysis, modeling, policy, etc.) that offer wonderful opportunities to develop interdisciplinary, system-thinking skills." -Thomas Stephens, SNRE MS Alum

Sustainable Systems Focused Master's Projects

Boyne Mountain Resort Environmental Sustainability Management Plan Master's Project: "The Boyne Mountain Project gave me an opportunity to put the skills I learned in Prof. Keoleian's Sustainable Energy Systems class into practice using real-world scenarios and data. Having an interdisciplinary team (2 MS students, 3 MBA/MS students (including one with a focus on finance), and an MLA/MS student) meant that we were able to provide wide-ranging recommendations on many different aspects of Boyne's operations, and allowed us to learn a great deal from each other." --Imogen Taylor, SNRE Sustainable Systems Alum

What exactly is the study of Sustainable Systems?

Both developed and developing nations face ever-growing challenges to meet basic human needs in a sustainable manner. Key issues include depletion of fossil fuels, global warming, water scarcity, loss of biodiversity and the human health impact, all of which are compounded by an expanding global population. Innovative solutions are required at all levels of society to address these complex and inter-related problems. Individuals and communities, small businesses and global corporations, government agencies and non-governmental organizations "“ each constituency plays a vital role in the creation of a sustainable world.

The Sustainable Systems field of study offers an interdisciplinary curriculum focused on enabling technology and enterprise to enhance the sustainability of systems that provide mobility, shelter, sustenance, communication and recreation. It draws on and benefits from the diversity of faculty expertise found at the school and across the University. Students develop the skills necessary for effective and innovative leadership in the public and private sectors. "In these leadership roles, our graduates will solve complex sustainability challenges through systems thinking and a sound understanding of ecological principles, the capabilities and limitations of technology and the mechanisms which bring about social change,"  says Professor Gregory A. Keoleian, coordinator of the Sustainable Systems field of study.

Why should employers hire Sustainable Systems students?

SNRE Sustainable Systems students develop critical skills of systems thinking and systems-dynamics modeling and apply them to the challenges of global environmental and social change. Life-cycle assessment, risk-benefit analysis, environmental economics, energy analysis, design for environment, carbon emissions modeling and spatial analysis are among the analytical tools and skills taught.

Our graduates are able to pursue careers in the private sector, often involving engineering and product development, management consulting, and strategic and sustainability planning. Students will be qualified to fill a professional position in the public sector with federal agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency or the National Renewable Energy Lab, with a state or municipal governmental unit, or with nonprofit groups, such as Environmental Defense or the Natural Resources Defense Council.

Some students also have the opportunity to work with the Center for Sustainable Systems and the Graham Environmental Sustainability Institute on the University of Michigan Campus. Many Sustainable Systems students are also dual degree students involved with the Erb Institute. Students in the Erb Institute will graduate with a dual MS/MBA between SNRE and the Ross School of Business.

Other Sustainable Systems students are pursuing a dual degree with Engineering, called Engineering Sustainable Systems. Launched in the fall of 2007, the dual degree confers a master of science (MS) degree from SNRE and a master of science in engineering (MSE) from the College of Engineering (CoE). For ESS information and career assistance, please visit the ESS Website.

Examples of Sustainable Systems coursework:

Students gain expertise in systems analysis techniques with a wide range of applications, including renewable energy, water infrastructure, green construction, and sustainable mobility. Through coursework, students examine sustainability by studying global and regional environmental impacts, materials and energy flows, social values and equity issues, and consumption patterns and sufficiency.

Skill sets include: management training in environmental strategy, organizational change and conflict resolution, ethics, stakeholder engagement and scenario analysis. Students deepen their understanding of institutions that govern energy use and explore ways in which government policy has succeeded, or failed, in order to address the need for renewable energy and other sustainable-development challenges.

"The key to Sustainable Systems is learning how complex systems arise, how they are organized, and how they all connect - the big picture or 'ecosystem level' view of environmental/natural resource issues. In addition to understanding this larger view as more than the sum of its individual parts, students should be able to effectively tackle one of the inter-related problems, and understand the larger effects of that action. It is this ability to see the larger complex system, yet dissect the individual issues that make the program strong. I also learned the technical and quantitative tools to address a particular issue, which I think is critical." --William Walter, SNRE Sustainable Systems Alumni working in a Presidential Management Fellowship (PMF) position with Region 5 Chicago EPA in the Great Lakes National Program Office 

Courses

Systems Thinking For Sustainable Enterprise This course develops the critical skills of Global Systems Thinking, Systems Dynamics Modeling (using state-of-the-art Stella and iThink), fosters awareness, sensitivity and literacy regarding Global Environmental and Social Change, and helps students understand Sustainable Human Development and Enterprise as an ongoing, adaptive learning process while exploring the most promising opportunities for business in helping to ensure that human needs are met while the planet"â„¢s life-supporting environment is nurtured and restored.

Industrial Ecology Industrial Ecology is the analysis of material and energy flows in industrial and ecological systems to enhance eco-efficiency and sustainability in meeting human needs. Methods studied include: how life cycle assessment quantifies energy, wastes and emissions for materials production, manufacturing, product use, and recovery/disposition; life cycle design integrates environmental, performance, economic, and policy/regulatory objectives.

Sustainable Energy Systems This course is an assessment of the current energy systems that encompass resource extraction, conversion processes and end-uses. Sustainability is examined by studying global and regional environmental impacts, economics, energy efficiency, consumption patterns and energy policy.

Green Development The built environment is a major source of society's environment impact; and is a major opportunity to find solutions.  This course explores green development from a variety of perspectives: energy, heating, water use, construction processes, architectural design, site planning, brownfield development and others.

Strategies for Sustainable Development This course deals with environmental issues from a strategic perspective. It focuses on how environmental pressures (e.g. sustainable development) and environmental problems (e.g. global warming, air pollution, waste-disposal), impact corporate mission, competitive strategy, technology choices, product development decisions, and production processes. Basic concepts of ecology and environmental science are discussed and contrasted to those associated with the traditional economic paradigm. The pressure for sustainable development has significant implications for firms, particularly large multinational corporations. With free trade on the rise, long-term opportunities exist for firms able to identify, develop, and deploy technologies, products, and services that contribute to sustainable practices and resource use in the developing world. This course examines how long-term competitive positioning can be secured through strategies such a environmental partnerships, technology cooperation, and collaborative planning.

Energy Markets and Energy Politics The goal of this course is to give students a solid grasp of the environmental and social impacts of, and the institutions that govern energy use, so students can play a more effective role in shaping future policy or business decisions. Students begin with basic scientific and technological facts regarding the major uses for and sources of energy.  Energy markets (including spot and future markets), and what they are capable of accomplishing are studied.  The way energy markets may fail are also discussed.  This will lead into an overview of the role of government in influencing energy decisions, starting with a high-level perspective, and then working with a series of case studies that examine in depth what government has accomplished in the area of energy policy.  The course will wrap up with several current policy/business issues such as renewable portfolio standards, markets for renewable energy credits, and integrating the transportation sector into a cap-and-trade system for greenhouse gas emissions.

Natural Resources and Environmental Conflict Management This course builds an understanding of the causes, dynamics and consequences of natural resource and environmental conflicts as well as the range of possible procedural interventions that can be used to manage these conflicts. The course emphasizes the practical application of dispute resolution theories to the environmental and natural resource context. Case materials for the course are drawn from current conflicts in situations including public lands management, air and water pollution regulation, solid and hazardous waste facility siting, wildlife and endangered species management, and community planning.

Students can also reach out to other schools and departments on campus to find faculty members interested in Sustainable Systems. Faculty members in Engineering (Chemical Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Energy Systems Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering), Environmental Health Sciences in the School of Public Health, Ford School of Public Policy, Ross School of Business, Taubman College of Architecture, and Taubman College of Urban and Regional Planning offer courses and conduct research in Sustainable Systems.
