Ross Harding, a leading authority on environmental sustainability, has been chosen to speak at the Georgia Tech Savannah graduate recognition and awards ceremony on Tuesday.
The event, which is open to the public, will be held at the Mighty Eighth Air Force Museum at 6 p.m.
Harding is vice president of business development for Herty Advanced Materials Development Center. His presentation, entitled “Creating our Future,” will focus on how a rapidly industrializing global population is outpacing the world’s ability to meet the increased demand for quality of life.
At the ceremony, the spring 2008 Georgia Tech Savannah graduating class will be recognized and inducted into the campus chapter of the prestigious Order of the Engineer.
The Georgia Tech Savannah campus, with nearly 30 faculty members and approximately 200 students, awards both graduate and undergraduate degrees in electrical, civil, computer and mechanical engineering. The 46-acre campus is located off Jimmy DeLoach Parkway on Interstate 95 in Savannah.
