Advancing Sustainability Using ICT

The environmental issues we now face are believed to be the result of our social systems. Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has the potential to help us better understand, monitor in read-time, and reduce our impact on the environment. AITIS Lab, in the Department of Engineering Science, is committed to utilize the engineering expertise and research activity of its faculty to initiate innovative and sustainable graduate and undergraduate projects to educate future environmentally responsible and skilled engineers. We work with local industries and organizations to provide sustainable engineering solutions. Click here to learn more about our research activities and ongoing projects .....more; / Main Page.

Saving Water in Sonoma County

In this project the engineering students at SSU are deigning a water monitoring system, which measures how much water we use in the bathroom or as we shower. The device can easily be installed on any sink and no plumbing or hardware modifications are required. We plan to test this device in the Salazar building in June. A prototype will be available at the 350 event near the Environmental Technology Center building on May 14th and 15th. Come and see it for yourself! Click here to view pictures.
