Our related educational program will create and steer the large-scale adoption of learning modules and educational curriculum for engineers, managers, planners, and analysts so they are workforce-ready to impactfully contribute to implementing net zero carbon freight systems, supply chains, and energy systems that are concurrently efficient, resilient, and socially beneficial.

We particularly aim to leverage the Net Zero Freight System Program to launch a new educational program in Sustainable Systems Engineering to serve as a model for engineering education to reach net zero emissions. The program will ensure that supply chain engineers have the knowledge, capability and skills to implement and innovate for net zero carbon supply chains and energy systems over the course of their careers.

Building on the student-initiated Macro-Energy Systems Coalition at Georgia Tech, Stanford, Princeton, and other leading universities, the program will provide a model that can be adapted nationally and internationally at diverse institutions, focusing on undergraduate and masters’ students. A PhD level program will also train a select cohort of PhD students for careers in net zero supply chain innovation.
