    Summer in India with a Special Experiential Learning Excursion to the Himalayas

    Stony Brook offers the opportunity for students to be hosted by our colleagues at Panjab University in Chandigarh. Chandigarh, designed by Swiss-born architect Le Corbusier and completed in 1960s, is located near the foothills of the Sivalik range of the Himalayas. Recognized as a City of Peace, students will get a chance to explore local culture, enjoy multi-ethnic culinary experience while attending a series of lectures on topics related to Sustainable Future through Renewable Energy. Renewable sources could play a vital role in achieving manageable atmospheric CO 2 levels by 2035. This course, jointly taught by local faculty, explores types of renewables that can feasibly and sustainably replace fossil fuels. Students will also participate in a special experiential learning excursion to the Himalayas where renewable energy is starting to get interwoven into the society. This course will focus on fundamentals of renewable energy sources, the feasibility of renewable source development assessed through techno-economic and life cycle analysis (LCA), and their positive impact on local communities.
