*Get involved!* Undergraduates can enter the 9-credit undergraduate specialized studies program. Master's students can enter the dual degree program between the College of Engineering and School of Natural Resources and Environment. All students from any discipline can participate in the variety of student activities and organizations dedicated to advancing sustainability, environmental, and health objectives through the appropriate design and implementation of technology. BLUElab is an excellent starting point for students interested to get involved with sustainable engineering. *Interested in news and events?* PISE features a sustainability and technology news service (RSS) in a sustainability blog. Sustainable engineering events, commentary, news articles, and features are maintained on the program's Facebook and Twitter pages. Sustainable engineering, technology, and culture video is also compiled on the program YouTube Channel. UM Sustainability events are maintained on a Google Calendar. Students interested in learning how UM coursework in sustainability fits into their departmental major can visit the College of Engineering Sustainability Course Selector (currently under construction). Organizations with a primary mission to improve the welfare of society and the planet through sustainable and appropriate design and implementation of technology are listed below.
|BLUElab is a student organization serving as an incubator for student innovations in sustainable design and educaiton, as well as appropriate technology development at home and abroad. BLUElab seeds and helps project teams succeed in developing environmentally, culturally, and economically sustainable technologies.|
|BLUElab also organizes educational events to raise awareness of development issues and the critical role engineers play in tackling these technical problems in a socially responsible way.

BLUElab also organizes educational events to raise awareness of development issues and the critical role engineers play in tackling these technical problems in a socially responsible way. BLUElab’s diverse membership consists of over one hundred undergraduate and graduate students spanning all College of Engineering departments, as well as students studying disciplines outside of engineering. In addition to its members, BLUElab collaborates with other student-run organizations, faculty, professionals, and nonprofits. BLUElab was recently featured in a Michigan Engineering video called Engineering Social Change, which includes interviews with some of our executive board and project members. See the video here.
