Environmental engineering program earns accreditation

first_imgNotre Dame’s environmental engineering program has now earned accreditation from the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). “There’s a process by which you first have to go through several years of your program, collect materials and information about your students and graduates, present that [to ABET] and then they consider you for accreditation,” said Robert Nerenberg, associate professor in the College of Engineering.Incoming sophomores in the fall of 2013 were among the first students who participated in the environmental engineering program. Since then, the department has graduated 50 environmental engineering students.The accreditation is retroactive to Oct. 1, 2015, meaning those alumni who graduated in the past now have accredited degrees, associate teaching professor Liz Kerr said. Kerr also currently serves as director of undergraduate studies in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering & Earth Sciences.“The alumni that we have were the trailblazers,” Kerr said. “They were confident that they wanted to be in this major, and they trusted that we would get the degree accredited so they could have a more meaningful degree and get an engineering license.”Nerenberg said it is a normal and natural step when a new degree is implemented to go through the accreditation process, and the department was accredited without any modifications.Separately offering the environmental engineering degree and changing the name of the department from Civil Engineering and Geological Sciences to Civil and Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences helped students become more aware of the environmental aspect, Nerenberg said.The University’s environmental engineering program offers a variety of opportunities to engage students in the industry by combining practical environmental engineering projects with a strong theoretical foundation, Kerr said.She said the students work on a local design project their senior year with other environmental and civil engineers to benefit the city of South Bend.“This year they will be working on two different projects,” Kerr said. “There’s a western avenue project where they’re working on separating the combined sewer system and creating green infrastructure to help mitigate flooding during storm events, and then they’re also working on a project to upgrade the water treatment facility.”Kerr said by bringing in community members and engaging the students with community projects, they receive a more realistic experience in the field.Nerenberg said because all of the faculty in the department are active in research, undergraduates have more opportunities to be involved in research which allows the students to be further immersed in the field.With growing problems including climate change, water scarcity and population growth, the field of environmental engineering will become even more prevalent, Nerenberg said.“I think anyone who’s good at math and science and is interested in technical things should take a look at environmental engineering because we really are able to serve the public in a very direct way,” Nerenberg said. “We work on behalf of municipalities, state and federal governments looking after the health and safety of people.”Tags: Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, College of Engineering, Environmental Engineeringlast_img read more

Webb blocks ‘piecemeal’ reform of fiduciary duty

first_imgWebb said he did not object to the “spirit” of the amendments, but noted that, on issues of climate change and fiduciary duty, he was required to defer to the Department of Energy & Climate Change and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills.The latter department was behind the recent Kay Review on long-term investing and earlier this year asked the Law Commission to review whether and how the current interpretation of fiduciary duty might hinder long-term investing.The pensions minister said he encouraged Lucas “to keep up the pressure across government”.“To be frank, this issue is not always at the top of the pension agenda, so I welcome the amendments for that reason,” he said.Webb added that he would like the amendments to be withdrawn, as he would prefer “a more overarching framework affecting company law, business regulation and the duties of trustees not only in pensions but beyond”.However, Lucas was insistent that an independent review of how climate change and natural resource constraints impact private pension savings – which her amendment suggests should be completed by the beginning of 2015 – would give “some comfort and reassurance” that Webb was serious about tackling the issue.“The new clause is not just about fiduciary duty – it is about gathering data on the impact of climate change and natural resource constraints for the sustainability of private pensions and for a better understanding of the systemic risks posed by high levels of exposure to fossil fuels and other carbon-intensive assets,” she said.The third reading of the Pensions Bill, legislating for the new single-tier state pension and allowing the DWP to introduce a fee cap for auto-enrolment schemes, coincided with the launch of a report by lobby group ShareAction calling on trustees to consider the financial and wider macroeconomic risks of climate change. The UK government must take a holistic approach when reforming the fiduciary duty of pension trustees rather than amend legislation in a “piecemeal” fashion to address concerns on sustainable investing, the pensions minister has warned.Speaking in the House of Commons, Steve Webb said that, rather than his Department for Work & Pensions (DWP) rewriting pensions legislation to address isolated concerns about fiduciary duty, it was important to work on the issue across government departments.“We are trying to be as careful and as cross-departmental as we can, so we want to look at the whole investment chain and how corporate governance, the law of the land and pensions will be affected, to make change in an integrated and connected way,” the Liberal Democrat minister said.His comments come after Green Party MP Caroline Lucas tabled several amendments to the current Pensions Bill – one suggesting an independent review of the impact of climate change on investments and a second asking that the Pensions Regulator be required to improve and promote understanding of long-term and sustainable investing.last_img read more

Swiss pension fund seeks closed-end CLO ideas [updated]

first_imgAn unnamed Swiss pension fund has turned to IPE’s Discovery service to request managers to come forward who have already launched or will in the near term launch a closed-end CLO fund.According to request DS-2605, the pension fund is interested in vehicles that invest only in CLO tranches – of all ratings – and equity notes, although “some allocation to high yield or senior secured loans would be okay”.The pension fund is after a fund structure, not a separate account. A commingled closed vehicle would be acceptable, but not a dedicated fund as the pension fund’s investment portfolio was too small for that. The vehicle should have a time horizon of around five years.It has said it seeking an opportunistic/distressed CLO fund with limited lifetime. “The fund should profit from current opportunities in the CLO market, i.e. buy performing debt and equity notes at distressed prices in order to be able to keep them until maturity and/or sell at higher prices in the future when the market calms down,” it said.The potential mandate size is $10-20m (€9-18m).The deadline to respond to the request for information is 24 April.IPE’s Discovery service is a pre-RFI tool that enables institutional asset owners to carry out a preliminary search for managers active in a particular asset class or region. Asset owners can also use this tool to research an asset class they are looking at for the first time.The IPE news team is unable to answer any further questions about IPE Quest, Discovery, or Innovation tender notices to protect the interests of clients conducting the search.
