Discover the universe of cleantech solutions to our most pressing environmental challenges and raise awareness of how you can be part of the solution.  You’ll form cross-disciplined teams around problems you identify, and present your solutions to the class.  Although not required, teams are invited to compete in the newly named Alaska Airlines Environmental Innovation Challenge April 2, 2015.

The seminar consists of a selection of required readings and a series of industry experts who will speak on a specific cleantech topic. You will work in teams to present a proposed solution to an environmental problem. The final deliverable for the class is a 5-10 minute presentation.

Course topics include:
  • Environmental challenges and opportunities linked to cleantech.
  • How to translate an idea into an actual device/product/company. 
  • Market assessment (who would be the customer for this product or service?)
