NIST Standards Services Curricula Development Cooperative Agreement Program Awardee (2018) 

Standards-Aligned Design for Smart Sustainable Cities

To develop an interdisciplinary curriculum sequence focused on smart sustainable cities. The curriculum will integrate standardization, innovation studies, and engineering education to inspire engineers to think about societal challenges like transportation, energy, the environment and healthcare in new ways. This project is a collaboration between the Department of Engineering and Society, a unit within the School of Engineering and Applied Science, focused on engineering responsibility and ethics education; Link Lab, an innovation hub at UVA which provides cutting edge interdisciplinary research in cyber-physical systems; and the University Library, offering standards databases and integrated data repositories.
