Though this project is a computer science-based project, the user will learn about the triple bottom line framework of sustainability and how to implement that framework in decision making.
While testing the GUI being developed, project participants will practice evaluating sustainability decisions, one of the professional skills needed in the field of sustainability.
Completing this project for the Office of Sustainability is considered an internship experience. The participants will be expected to treat the Office of Sustainability as a professional client. Professional communication, completion of tasks and professional presentation of a deliverable at the end of the project is expected as part of the professional development experience.
