CE 105 – Spring 2021

Stockton AB 617 Design Strategies

During Spring 2021, four teams of UC Berkeley undergraduate engineering students took part in a community-engaged design course entitled CE 105 Design for Global Transformation. Student teams were challenged to research, imagine, and design strategies to help the Stockton AB 617 community reduce air pollution and tackle climate change.

Please read the student StoryMaps which share the main findings! Further details can be found in the final reports and video presentations also linked below.

A big thank you to all the community members who contributed so much to this work! We welcome questions, comments, and feedback! Please email tinakc@berkeley.edu.

Course instructors: Prof. Tina Katopodes Chow, Bavisha Kalyan, Sarah Hodson
