Brief Description

While computation has revolutionized the information era, a bigger challenge lies ahead – how do we harness the power of computation to address the pressing issues of sustainability? In this course, we explore the state-of-the-art work in sustainable computing and novel uses of computation to address sustainability challenges, as well as enjoying hands-on experiences such as building smart plug and smart lighting systems.
