Professor Emeritus Richard Dorf

Professor Emeritus Richard Dorf presented workshops on the creation of sustainable technologies at Arizona State University from January 10-14. The event was sponsored by the College of Science and Applied Technology. The curriculum for the workshop was based on Dorf’s textbook, Technology, Humans, and Society: Towards a Sustainable World (Academic Press: 2001). Workshop participants included graduate students and faculty members in the audience as well as 40 students around the world who joined in the exercises and discussion via a video cast. The students’ research fields ranged from environmental management and sustainability to electronics and computer engineering technology, computer science and aeronautical management technology and emergency management. Following the workshops, Dorf was invited to a formal dinner to give a lecture on sustainability of resources to Dean Albert L. Mchenry, Provost Gerald Jakubowski and faculty members.
