This short course offers students an interdisciplinary perspective on solving some of the world’s biggest challenges to date: Green Technology and Energy in developing countries. These issues span topics covered in a wide variety of fields, such as business, engineering and the social sciences. How will MIT develop the best technologies? Scientists must delve into the area of interest and understand the need of the people; they must assess environmental and social impacts; and they must ensure feasibility – scientifically and economically – so that the technology can be produced.
