Climate Accounting and Engineering Minor
The Climate Accounting and Engineering minor provides students with the knowledge and skills needed to help organizations, either as employees or external consultants, identify, reliably measure and faithfully represent the environmental impact of their direct and indirect activities. The accountancy courses included in the minor will provide students with an understanding of key concepts relating to the identification, measurement and reporting of information for decision-making along with an opportunity to apply those concepts in the context of organizations' environmental impact. The engineering courses included in the minor will provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to evaluate and design systems for reducing environmental impact and assess the impact of such systems in comparison to the best and reasonably available control technology standards (BACT, RACT).
Students majoring in Accountancy can count no more than 9 hours from their major towards this minor. Students minoring in Environmental Engineering can count no more than 9 hours from their minor to this minor.
The minor will require 18 credit hours of coursework composed of 9 credit hours of accountancy courses (see accountancy course sequence below); and 9 credit hours of engineering courses (see engineering course sequence below). In addition, we intend to have an optional annual, firm/company sponsored case competition for which students potentially could earn one additional credit hour.
Accountancy majors will need to take 9 credit hours of CPB courses that do not overlap with the Accountancy major. Environmental Engineering minors will need to take 9 credit hours of ACC courses that do not overlap with the minor.
