In this three-course certificate program, students investigate the principles of green chemistry, an innovative approach for designing safer and more sustainable commercial products and industrial processes involving chemicals. Students examine the connection between chemical toxicity and human health, and see how these factors influence material and product decision making. Students develop a new framework for reducing chemical risks and unintended adverse consequences to incorporate best practices into a business model that leads to safer, more cost-effective design and selection decisions.
